January fishing

This has been a fantstic Winter.  Fronts rolling through about 4-5 days bringing rain and snow to the Sierra. It's fabulous and a welcome sight. Now if we can get three or four of these winters in a row we will be in good shape. Thats a lot to ask for I know so we shall see..

Fishing has been slow and steady. Few trout here and there and a couple of Steelhead swinging streamers so far. The two Steelhead were really rewarding fish. Both came at the end of a long day of casting..It sure makes the two hour ride home totally worth it!!

 Carp on the fly is still going good if you know where to look.  Getting  roughly a dozen shots a session with about half that landed on a good day. Some days its zero. They are spooky and difficult to feed but when it goes right and they make a move to the flats they will eat. Its been hard to find clear days and that is the hardest part.

Enjoy the winter!
