Late January on the Green.

We added a new addition to our fishing line up. Its a 14 ft raft all set up for the river. We couldnt wait to test it out on the green. So we packed up and headed out in the midddle of a storm. The weather broke as we got closer to the river, temps were cold, but we were ready for it. We did a little nymphing, but the primary method was streamers. At one point we were stopped and Randy tied on a small, light bodied, soft hack and swung it to a riser. The fish was a fairly large brown. The first time through he came up and ripped it right off. Didnt even have a chance to set and it was gone. Pounding the shore with streamers paid off big time. In total we probbably took 20-25 fish a day on the meat. Matt had a monster chasing but called the set too early and missed him. We had some other big boys on but for this or that reason we failed to complete the transaction. 16-19 inchers were the average take for this trip. Saw some Elk, plenty of Deer, overall a fun trip.
