Sometimes you get up, get out, and get after it and things turn out infinity times better than you expect. This weekend that happened. Managed to escape to the stream one morning and happened upon icy cold, clear water, multiple hatches, and feeding feesh. And it was in los angles county. Never would have thunk it could be true but I always wondered what was in them hills above the city from the time I was about ten years old. Now I know, and I can't wait to get back.
Creme de la creme; I got a few fish out of this section, one of which was a surprising catch for this water...I was stoked!
Absolutely chomped the size 16 adams, fought like a brute, somehow even putting a near double over bend in my 5wt, which was without a doubt like bring a gun to a knife fight on this stream (until I ran into this feller)
Fish o' the day.
