Fishing today was great despite high water levels. After the water shot up to 3,000 cfs yesterday I had my worries but John and Josh, undaunted, managed to work the slow seams and present some flies that the trout could not, or should I say would not, refuse. Fished some attractor nymphs but once again the Muskegon River scud(gammarus scud) #16-#18 put the majority of the hurt on the boys. That along with John’s “hair-trigger” that begged to be tripped. Woe unto the unsuspecting trout that grabs his loaded scud! John maybe the only person I know who can give a trout whirlings disease by mechanical means. Actually , if you’ve seen John on my blog before it’s because he often ends up with some nice fish. What a great day to be out; saw some nice trout caught, had reasonable winter weather, made a new friend. My apologies to those of you who missed it.
