The Patagonia

Jumping Trout

Today was a cloudy day, I went upriver to the gorge, they were no fish feeding on the surface, no luck with subsurface nymphs either.

I saw the most unusual thing, a trout jumping entirely out of the water by at least one of his lengths above and away from the surface. This fish performed this feat several times and then either moved on or started again further upstream. I believe it was feeding on Damsel Fly’s which were in abundance that day.

The water level was up a couple of inches, water temperature about 56 degree F air temp and in the ’50s, occasional light showers and intermittently breezy.

I did catch 2 15″ browns that put up a good fight.

This afternoon I practiced with my OPST Commando Line on the 6 weight switch rod, I am getting ready for the Pepacton Reservoir and bass season.
