Finally got some needed time on the water this weekend. Headed to the Dream Stream for a quick tune up before my annual spring fishing trip. The Dream fished very well. Lots of fish were caught, nothing of super size, did however mange to land some beautiful Cutbows.
One of the Cutbows was pushing 19" inches and in full spawning colors, came out of a deeper hole to grab the streamer.
The weather was super cold in the morning. Lots of ice on the lines and in the guides. After 10:00am things warmed up nicely. Great Midge hatch for most of the afternoon. We fished from 7am till about 4. Good time was had by all except for Jeff, who broke his rod. Bummer.
This was the perfect tune up to try out several new patterns that I have been working on for our trip next week to the San Juan. The upcoming trip is replacing my annual spring trip to the Bighorn, decided it was time to venture off and hit a new piece of water that I have yet to fish. So we decided on the San Juan this year.
Looking forward to fishing the Juan for a few days.
