Well it is that time of year again. Rivers are low and clear. Banks are easy to walk and the vegetation has died back. The fall garbage hatch is on... had a slow day on the river Sunday. Cut and planted some willows along the banks to improve my river karma. Kept finding trash to stuff in the hip pack,found way more than I could fit in my pack on the way back to the truck...... Ran into a guy from TU on the river that was happy to see someone out on their own planting stream banks etc. He told me about a spot that I have driven past for over ten years, but never fished. Weedy, spring creek like puddle that I always assumed would be to shallow to hold decent fish over the winter.. Too warm for trout in the summer. Weeds up to a few inches below the surface. The few boils i had seen driving by I assumed were some dink sunfish or methane bubbles from all the weeds. Went there on my way home. Washed off the skunk.
