We fished the Elkhorn on Thursday and the conditions were perfect. This was the first time I have hit the stream since the awful drought that shut down pretty much everything. The water level and clarity were both good. We caught fish on both Dixie Devils and subsurface flies.
this fish was putting up a nice fight in the swift current and I could sort of get a look at the fish as the customer was fighting him and I thought “this is a nice smallie”. Well the fight was good, but the fish was not a smallie but a cat.
