The rain on Thursday and Friday had a very positive effect on this little stream and its wild residents. Cream-colored Usuals and Bombers, as well as a parachute ant pattern, elicited numerous strikes and hookups this morning. The relatively high flow seemed to invigorate the fish, even bringing out some of the larger inhabitants (in relative terms). Although I ventured farther upstream than I have in the past, my sense is that there is still more good water to explore. Now I hope we get rain two days a week every week for the rest of the month.
