...but not a whole lot more to tell. The day was beautiful (a weekday off too!) - got an early start with my buddy Darren, on the road at 5:30, to our destination (the Ark) by about 8am. No one around, bright sun, wasn't too cold, a little wind (but a cold wind), the water was the right flows (550+ cfs to be exact). Rigged up quickly, in the water soon after, about 1,000 casts, 4 rig changes, 2 blue heron sightings, 2 mean Canadian Geese that were giving us the evil eye(s). Oh, how was the fishing? It was great, the catching...well not so good. Darren did ok, about 6 fish and at least that many hook ups. Me - I got nothing - big ole SKUNKED!
We fished my secret spot and then moved to below Brown's Canyon for the afternoon. I was stone cold and shut out.
I was surprised to see some HUGE stonefly casings at our first stop - they looked like last years casings, but I'm not sure since they were very close to the water line and there was 6 or seven of them all together.
This sucker ws easily 3 inches + long, and most of the others I found in this "pile" were only slightly smaller. So next time you doubt how big/small the stones are on the Ark, here is some evidence!
Most of the other stones were this size - which is less than a half inch long!
Although I hate getting skunked, it was well worth the trip. Good company, beautiful day, good bugs, nice trip - I can't complain.
