Trinity Fish Stix...



Mmm...Fish Stix

Got Tartar Sauce?

 Headed up to the Trinity this past weekend for some R&R. The section from 250' below Lewiston Dam to the Lewiston Bridge is a "Fly Fish Only" section and has been a mystery to me for quite some time, and wanted to check it out.  As we arrived-expecting some late run Metals-we were very surprised when we noticed that nobody was with big gear in hand; turns out, this section is a Dry fly-Little Guy mecca.  Within minutes Hilary had two fish stix landed and I decided to make use of my new Switch-Rod and practice swinging some bugs with the Rio Switch Line-thanks Gill. We landed at least 3 dozen fish stix ranging from 12" to 4"; if the family needed to be fed, they would have been with perfect bite size morsels-- "Fish Stix".

 All in all, the trip was not a bust.  Enjoyed some camping, relaxing, and scenery. Not to mention I am in love with my Switch and have it down. Early Saturday, we did see one guy -down stream- land at least a five pounder, and up from camp I saw one spent steely. Apparently if you do decide to fish this section, bring light gear and don't get your hopes up for a buck/hen. On the flip side, there are some later runners in there-if you are fortunate enough to hook into one.

 Also, another highlight of the trip.  Once again I needed to borrow something from Ryan and once again, I managed to demolish it.  Hint- it's the chair I am sitting in below- that makes number 3 for devices used while sitting...




One for the ladies...
A.K.A. The fish attractor
