Rain Comes and Goes...
Rain hit unexpectedly last early Sunday morning and raised the Smith to a decent level. I left the Trinity biting great on Sunday and fished the Smith Monday and Tuesday with clients Mark Gavasse and Jeremy Baker. Fishing was good both days with a mix of bright and dark fish caught. Our biggest was a huge 45lb buck caught by Jeremy.
Flows dropped out on the Smith by Wednesday and I was back to the Trinity, where the great fishing picked up where it left off. Most the fish we're pulling on are fish over 20lbs with a few jacks mixed in. Many of these fish have some color, but there are a few shiny ones mixed in everyday. All in all some of the best uncrowded fishing you could ask for!
I have been presenting this option to my clients I booked for the Smith this month and its not a bad backup plan. I will continue go east until the fishing over the hill dries up or it starts raining again. It looks like there may be some significant moisture on the horizon late next week. We'll see how that pans out.
