I was able to get out for a few hours on the Musky Saturday morning. After three trips to the South Branch where I turned a few heads and had to settle for suckers, not trout, I needed a good day.
I got it. in the form of stocked rainbows. The fish were hungry and cooperating. I fished a jig head hares ear and a San Juan trailer. The stockies almost all took the worm. The final count was two on the hairs ear and over 10 on the worm.
I got home by noon and spent the rest of the day in the yard, with the family, doing chores.
Central Chapter of TU was out doing the Musky clean up and made me feel guilty, but I had a buddy out with me who recently had back surgery and need his fix of trout fishing. I only felt guilty for a short period of time.
