    Default American Sunday Evening

    Fished the American below the power line Sunday from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. (all I could manage), and fishing lived up to my low expectations. I had a few taps on a beadhead prince / fox's poopah combo and that's it. I saw a bunch of tricos or small olives (but nothing rising), a few midge clusters, and a caddis or two. No fish seen. There was one other fly fishermen who didn't appear to fare any better. Not sure if it was the time of day or the flows, but it was definitely worse than last year at this time (though last year I was fishing early mornings).

    Ah yes. The American and low expectations go hand in hand. When on the A, only expect to go fishing! . . . And hope your car doesn't get broken into
    FISH HARD OR GO HOME

    Fished a run this sunday. Was pretty disgusted with all of the mono from the salmon snaggers hanging in the river. Pretty much got tangled on every other swing. Pulled a lot of big trebles out of the river, yuck.

    I hear ya on the mono Aaron. I was fishing near Watt and got completely tangled in some thick 20lb+ mono. Wrapped all around my legs like spaghetti.

    Ticked me off.

    I just hope flows get down to 3000 while the half-pounders are still in the system. Otherwise, I'll be amortizing switch rod expenses over an embarrassingly small number of trips.

    Here's a photo from Sunday of the island on the Carmichael side -- looking upriver at the bottom of the island. A little high, less fishable water than at 3000.
