Guided Fly and Spey Fishing Trips for Steelhead and Brown Trout with
|Posted on September 17, 2015 at 5:10 PM|
With cooler nights and rain over the weekend, on Sunday I went out to explore one of the local Ohio Creeks. Though the flow was perfect, the recent rains had muddied the waters. In the early season, even a little bit of rain can color the water. It generally takes a few good showers to bump the flow up enough so that the silt deposited during spring storms on the riverbank flushes out. Water temperature was in the upper 50's though. I'd expect the first push of fish to be nosing around the mouth waiting for the next pulse of water to start shooting up.
On a second note, a good buddy of mine, Mark Gaissert, passed away Saturday night in Alaska. He and I guided together for 5 years in Alaska and was great fisherman, guide and friend. We spent countless days chasing trout, salmon, or wild Alaskan steelhead. Mark you will be missed. Hope the runs are good up there. Wet a fly on Sunday for you buddy. No steelhead yet. Here's a pic for you bud.
