 K2 tied into a good one at the Riffle Ranch

Looking at historical numbers of fish over Winchester lately. I always get excited around now but realize that run timings are fairly consistent. The numbers and dates tell the tale and you can almost set your clock to it. There are always a few early fish out there and catching one is always fun. What I have come to realize is that we haven't had a "normal" year of fishing in a few years. Last year was high water which allowed many fish to blaze through the fly water and up the creek.....a good thing. Sure, there were fish caught last year and I had decent fishing, it just didn't ever get hot for me. I had some good stretches but I actually did much better with my dudes last year than I did on my own...go figure.

I have a good feeling about this year, I can't explain it. My boy is ready to bust some string, I think he may just get a steelhead on a dry this year.  

The fish will come when they come as they always do, and we will be ready.
