Fished the upper sky with Mason Denger of PFF, John Farrar of NW Flyfishing, and myself. It was cold, and very wet. And, by wet I mean the river was on the way up way up, at the end of all of it all the river had come up over a foot on us.
The nice thing about fishing water like that is that you end up with the river all to yourself. Fishing tends to be tough with the river moving up the way that it was but we were able to dig up one player towards the end of the day. Had a few more rolling around but only could get one to play.
After a few runs into the backing, the first over 100yds, landing this beauty made standing the the downpours and the winds all worth it.
