For three days, from dawn to dusk...we fished the desert canyon of River X. It was a time with old friends and new friends. A time to fish to rising brown trout. A time away from the outside world...and all electronic devices to that world. It was about all of that and a lot more. PMD's, Mahoganies, BWO's, and Midges!
This special place will remain River X...at least on this blog site!
This is a place like no other. A place that is mysterious and as unusal as it's inhabitants under the water.
The Story Begins... Day 1
Heading North... I brought my friend Jeri with me to experience this great river for the first time. Time flies on the road when you have someone to talk with. And before you knew it...we were there. Eyes wide open, Jeri could see first hand that this was going to be quite the fishing weekend. I knew which hole I wanted to fish first...but, I remembered another spot that was pretty successful on my last trip with Rebecca Garlock. She was the one who got me hooked back in 2010. And every year now, it's a sabbatical. Sometimes twice during the year...
My first catch of the day wasn't too shabby... I was happy with this guy!
A nice 16-17 inch brown trout. Maybe on the short side of the avg. size of trout in this river...
On a midge, of course! (I have caught most of my River X fish on midges)
Throwing a dry dropper, Jeri got quickly into the game... Enjoying every minute of it!
Midges were abundant... often in clusters.
Thank heavens for "OPEN" signs in windows.
And actually, the food was pretty darn good.
Don't ever let bars on restaurant windows keep you away...haha.
We especially liked the "Sponge Bob Square Pants" pinata... = )
And you didn't think that I was adventurous...or maybe you did.
