Double header on the euro rod today.  Ended up with 7 trout.  Nothing bigger than 14-inches, bit was a great day to get out and didn't have anybody else fishing within sight of me.  A nice and relaxing afternoon.

Hot hot smallie action this week. Very clear water was making it tough but a clear intermediate line and light flies helped crack the code.

First stillwater trip of the season. Got a late start but went looking for some big browns on streamers with no success before the wind pushed me off that lake. 
 

Made a move and was kind of able to get out of the wind. Found one nice rainbow on a balanced leech. Scenery was pretty nice too

In the spirit of avoiding the crowds on our cold water fisheries…..the apex predators continue to be fun to fish for. The pike bite is an underrated experience. I think we put 8 in the net with two over 30”.  Feeding those 40” fish isn’t easy. Certainly will hold me over until the dirt roads firm up and stripers arrive.
