We decided to take advantage of low water again on the Norfork. I thought for sure we would have the same water we did the day before, but it actually turned out better than I expected. We had the siphon running today so that was a positive, but we also had a negative. After we started fishing, we could tell the fish size was down due to how clear the water was. Usually on a bright sunny day with gin clear water, can sometimes throw off the bite for bigger fish. It would have been nice to have some wind chop when this happens, but we didn’t have much of that either. Yesterday, that water was super dingy, and the rainbow trout weren’t giving it up that day as far as the sizable ones.
If you notice the bottom picture on the right, those little gel sacks you see with the little dots inside, those are all caddis eggs, and they will lay dormant until the end of April and then hatch. That goes to show you just what and abundance of caddis we have in both rivers.
