|Epic Yuba Blowout|
|New Sand Bank|
The flows have stabilized a bit but the river is still muddy and recovering. As I hiked around I noticed a lot of areas with vegetation facing downstream. From what I observed throughout the day, the flows must have gotten crazy high reaching most of the willows close to the banks. The fish will be eating well.
|Right Place. Wrong Fish|
I was able to get four hook ups with one landed by high-sticking the seams. The first three felt like nice sized trout that I couldn't bring out of faster water. The last hook up was a beatis eating sucker that was fun to land.
With a great warming forecast for the next two weeks, I will start focusing on figuring out the warm-water pattern of Ellis Lake. The prespawn will be on and I'm going to catch me a monster out of the crap hole.
