"into the grass emerald green water"
I fished with Norland today.
Wow...what a stellar day. Cold crisp air, a gloomy fall sky, and into the grass emerald green water... Seriously, what more could we have asked for?
With the recent abundance of water fishing has proven a little more challenging this fall season. Fish are scattered throughout the system. With new water comes new fish but these pushes don't seem to be prolific. However, the fish we are managing have been stunning and a compliment to our little river. One theory as to the lack of fish is that they have taken advantage of the unseasonably warmer water temps and abundance of flow and pushed hard up to the headwaters. I for one can only hope this is indeed the case. It certainly would be nice to know that we are in for a great spawning year. However hard I try I still cannot shake the image of our little river. When she comes into her own she truly is beautiful.
