This is the last day of their season
…so Chuck and I are here. Tim joined us as well. The place was empty.
I thought there would be a crowd of Art Flick TU’ers getting in one more fish but if they came, it must have been this morning. We met at 3 and went to Gate F. Rising fish.
Chuck went up
…as I put on a new leader, then I fish down to rising fish. Ant, October Caddis. No hookup. He drove down to Gate E and I fish down to him. Two small Brown’s for me; some Rainbows for Chuck on Golden Darter and perhaps a dry.
Tim shows up
…but his reel is messed up and takes him some time to get straightened out. By the time he is ready to fish, we move to Gate C wanting to fish a few spots, it being the last day and all. Tim stayed and, as we found out later, had a fish on a sunk sulfur.
At C he fishes the quiet water
… and a number of fish come up, one a big brown that he manages to land mid-dam, sans net. I try to do the same and have 2 good hits, but no hook up.
Tim comes and tries as well, but Chuck was the man tonight.
