Gas Is Too Damn High

This fall so far as been quite amazing. The weather has been nice and cool and the fish are eating flies. The only problem I have this fall is that gas prices in California are too damn high. At $4 a gallon it's been a bit of a hard sell to get me to travel to do any fishing.

I haven't been fishing too much recently since I started my new regular 8am - 5pm job. It totally beats working nights but has limited me to becoming a weekend warrior. I was able to get out to the Lower Yuba and it's been fishing pretty fair. The salmon are in and the fish are behind them in the riffles and it's easy game once you locate them. Catching a few egg eaters is fun for a bit but once you hook a few it gets old since it's pretty much fish-in-a-barrel.

The fall/winter hatches are starting to begin but I don't think they'll really get going until we get our first good winter system. Fingers cross that'll happen soon because I am looking forward for some awesome dry fly action. That is if I can find the time to get out for a few hours.
