For the early part of last week, I was back down to the Eel. At this point the river had picked up a little color from the little bit of rain we got late the previous week. The river looked great and the fishing was solid, but not spectacular. On tuesday, it began to rain which essentially blew the eel and most the other rivers in the county out. Thursday found me up on the Smith for the first time in over a month. Fishing there was a bit spotty for thursday and friday with 0-4 fish hooked for most of the guides working up there. The quality of fish in both rivers I fished last week was great, with all the fish we hooked being fresh, bright fish.
After a couple of days off, I'm back at it and I'm headed to an out of the way location where hopefully I can find some faster action.
