Stave River

The sun was out and I was on the river fishing, I couldn't ask for a better day. The fishing was a little slow though.  I started off well, catching a large pikeminnow, a wild coho jack and a resident rainbow. All three were caught on the fly rod using a blue body muddler minnow at first light. Alas, that's where the catching ended. I switched over to my spey rod and targeted chum. Unfortunately they were not going to cooperate with me. I did hook one but it spat the hook half way in. Nothing I threw at them would convince them to bite.

Despite the lack of fish it was a beautiful day out and I can't wait to go again. Next time I will give the spey and fly rod a  break and the gear rod will make a reappearance.
