Some days the fishing guides smile on you & some days they don’t cooperate.
About a week ago I spent 5 days floating the Smith River and due to water conditions I only landed 1 fish.
Being slightly frustrated, my next outing brought me to the Roaring Fork River on a recent road trip to Colorado. As I walked down the banks towards the river I noticed the water levels and visibility looked good, some clouds gathered and created some overcast, and I saw dozens of Mother’s Day caddis bouncing around the trees and bushes. It turned into one of those memorable afternoons when everything seems to come together. Bugs were dancing around the surface of the water and lots of healthy fish were feeding off the top.
I headed back to the truck very satisfied that afternoon after getting redemption from the Smith and a renewed faith in the fishing gods!
