Fishing after the rain 9/21

Good news is we got 1 1/2 inches of much needed rain this morning. After the rain stopped I walked in at the Cotter access. There were quite a few fish rising so I tied on a crackleback. Had a take on the first cast and steady action until it started misting and the wind started blowing. That shut the surface bite off so I switched to an egg/midge combo and caught quite a few on that. Then the mist stopped and the wind calmed down so I went back to the crackleback, Ended up with around 30 including this really fat 21" rainbow on the crackleback. She probably weighed close to 4 pounds and I thought that was a good fish to end the day with.

That's a Toad! Really, really nice fish on a fly rod

Thanks. She put up a good fight. I don't catch many that size in the catch and keep areas.

I don't catch many that size anywhere on the river.

the new regs were really helping pre-Covid ; maybe we'll get back there again
