Got the chance to fly fish on the firehole river in Yellowstone National Park. What a phenomenal experience. Truly unlocked the magic of the stream with beautiful weather and a bead headed pheasant tail fly.

Early Spring streamer fishing on the Colorado River along the Grand Hogback near New Castle, Colorado.

Pounding the banks with Streamers and hooking some big browns.

Trout seasons right around the corner. Wether it be fly or spinner, the bites always hot in the streams.
Tip of the day: drift your bait from farther up stream to not spook your trophy!!!

I was going to go fly fishing today, but with gusts up to 25 mph in the forecast I scrubbed fly fishing and just took two spin rigs. I was working a fly streamer and my trusty spinner bait.

My buddy @claydavis83 gave me some tips on catching trout on a spinner. I'll call it the "River Walk" technique since I don't really know what it's really called.

Basically you cast the spinner into fast moving water and let it wash down the stream "walking" in an arc to shallow water. Just reel enough to keep the spinner spinning. That's how I got my only fish of today.

Went to Morgan run with my ultra light to fish one of my favorite bends. It has a tiny stream flowing into it on the outside of the bend. Usually get a few fish there depending on the season. No action all through the bend.
I switched to a small soft plastic white grub tail 1 inch. 1 16 ounce jig head. Bouncing the lure along the bottom with little movement got this beautiful wild brown to strike. My reel was screaming as I ran downstream with him as he was in control of my little ultra light. He went for a log jam and I hesitantly tightened my drag one click, praying that he wouldn't break off. He tired out and came to the bank, only to take 4 more nice runs downstream testing the limit of my rod.
I forgot my net at home so I was extremely careful releasing and reviving this guy. So grateful to have so many great fisheries within an hour of me.

JimmyI guess I need to break down and buy myself a trout net, The one I've build just needs to be netted, which is turning out to be a lot more complicated than building the frame :(

This time of year I pretty much stick to fishing for wild brown trout on the upper gunpowder river in Parkton md. For those of you who are not familiar with md, the gunpowder river is a tailwater, which means that it flows out of a reservoir or lake. In this case prettyboy reservoir. The coldwater release policy ensures that the trout have cold clean water to keep them happy year round, which is good. This time of year they are very lethargic and its tough to get em interested. I got out last weekend with the intention of swinging streamers with my 5 weight. Unfortunately I dont think my streamer was getting down deep enough. I was fishing an area with large boulders and deeper holes. This guy was hanging out in front of the biggest boulder in 3 feet of water. I switched to my spinning rod and was drifting this 1/8 ounce jig on a downstream drift. Trying to bounce it off of each boulder. The boulder created a large area of slack water directly in front of it and thats were he wacked it. That is actually a crappie magnet brand soft plastic. Sometimes the browns really like em though and that day was no exception. Not a big fish, but I was extremely grateful to catch and release this beautiful little guy. Probably my last fish until April. Then its bass time.

I fished Morgan run this week with my 5wt. fly rod. I was overcome with joy when I realized I had successfully repaired my new hand me down waders. They were given to me by my buddy and needed a few holes patched up. I was so thankful because my old pair was toast. Thanks for the Waders Weare.
I saw some rising fish in the morning, but wasn't able to connect with any on the dry flies I had with me. I switched to a brown bead head streamer and began working the riffles at the tail end of a medium sized pool. After a few minutes I landed and safely released this feisty wild brown.

My buddy took this picture of me working on my fly cast. We both caught a couple wild brown trout in the 10 inch range on Hendricksons.

Late season on the West Branch of the Delaware River. Some of the mst selective wild trout put on their feed bag in October and can be taken on simple flies like a dead drift wooly bugger.

Fish always look bigger when they're caught in small water. This spring creek in Colorado gives up some monster browns.
