I had a chance to go half-day fishing during last week. So back on the river!
Hooked up a big one again in the same riffle where I caught the biggest one on last Sunday!
5lb, 23inches jack again. Uhhh...
I think I have seen you before. Same fish???
This is the one I caught on last Sunday. Definitely the same fish, same size, same body colour and he had a tiny scratch on his right cheek. Quite easy to identify him.
He was at exactly the same spot again. Last time, I put him back in the water at the next pool upstream because he ran up this fast run all the way through as I wrote though...
I thought he was gonna keep running upstream and stop at the next drop off somewhere but actually he got back to his favorite spot downstream. Amazing...
Another hook-up in the evening!
A big jack, 5.5lb, 24inches. I fought with him for ages, very strong!
One of the best fish I have caught in this year 2015.
"Do you want to see me again like the other one that I caught today for the second time??"
And on Sunday, I tried a new stretch out of my home river.
There was a heavy rain the night before but the river water stayed looking good regarding its colour.
So hooked up the first one as soon as I started fishing.
A nice 2.5lb hen.
Fished well all morning, 2-2.5lb fish took nymphs. But in the afternoon, the river went quiet and I noticed that the water started getting turbid for some reason.
Even this good looking water was completely quiet.
"Why is that?"
Only Czech Nymphing worked to catch small ones.
And then, in the evening, the river water level went up and badly turned turbid.
" Ohhh, Noooo~... No chance to fish anymore!"
I thought this was apparently a flow of discoloured water into the main stream from side waters like dams because of the heavy rain the night before.
It was sad to finish fishing earlier but I did.
As summer is over and it is getting wet here, river fishing really depend on rain and the river conditions. The size of the fish I catch is probably getting larger which is good, but I can't choose the day when to fish.
Hopefully I have a great fishing day next weekend.
