A windy trip

Recommended Posts

             Where to go , what to do?

    Really wanted to make the run to the Spring in Oklahoma for whites but with the wind forecast Curtice and the BilletHead met at the Aldrich ramp and jetted up the river looking for fish. Higher than the last time I was up there. We shot up to a couple of spots for a try. Anchored near a cut bank with some slower water. We rigged up the fly rods. Curt tied on a purple clouser and I a good old pink over white clouser. First cast this is what I got :) ,

A few casts later I had another,thumbnail_0411180803 - Copy.jpg19.5 inches :) . Funny how they bit. I would cast out and let the clouser swing. Strip back slowly. When I thought I had enough and wanted in I would strip fast to get line ready for another cast. This is when I got my hits stripping fast.

thumbnail_0411180803c - Copy.jpg We worked over several places. Whites were pretty scarce. I landed one and Curt two or three. It wouldn't be much of a trip if I did not catch something weird,thumbnail_0411181007 - Copy.jpg   Seen several other fishermen and three of those guys were fellow fly fisher folks. No one was tearing them up. Starting water temps 49 to 50 degrees. Did hit one stretch of 54 on way back to ramp. Most of the day it averaged 52 degrees.   A nice day out. Wind was strange in places. We knew it was South West but in places it was blowing up river seeming to come from the North.  Air temp started in the fifties and finished out close to seventy-five. Trying to decide if I should do this trip again in the AM? Also Trolling motor acting strange, got a spare that is working,

Around here if I'm catching Walleye then I'm 2 weeks early for the Whites.  

The wind was nuts around here today.  Not blowing all that hard but every gust was from a different direction.  Made for some challenging long range dinosaur shootin'.  

My phone's GPS function is stuck in a weird matrix and insists that I am in Eureka, Ks.   Been getting "Duck and Cover Tornado" warnings all day.   I changed my location 3 times.....it changes it right back.  Not sure how to fix this, but it's getting irritating.
