Had some wonderful weather this weekend, I fished the river Saturday from 11:00-1:00 and Easter from 10:00-1:00. Both days when I got there the temp was around 37-39 degrees. Once it hit around 45 degrees the trout started rising.
Most fish were landed on #2 panther martin spinners, yellow and orange. A couple were landed on rooster tails, but gold blades worked best.
#8-#12 caddis immitations worked very well when fish started rising.
Between the two days I landed 20 fish, and lost at least twice that many more to short strikes and spit out barbless hooks.
Fish were all between 6" and 12", most were 8-10 inches. Its been two lovely days on the water, I'm heading back out tomorrow morning to a different spot, going to see if I can find some brook trout because I've not caught a char since august.
