wacky weather weekend

Hi Folks, Crazy weather weekend with a big front moving into town.  Feels like Fall out there.  Created some thunder and lightening issues as well as dirty water on Saturday afternoon.  Oh well, I was able to guide on Sunday in a local river and the fishing was pretty good.  We spin fished and caught a mixed bag of tricks.  The water was still slightly off colored and the level was up just a bit.  Saw a good number of #22 Trico spinners with stocked trout rising to eat them.  Water temperature was 65 degrees.  We landed 7 smallmouth bass, 4 stocked rainbows, and 2 really big Fall Fish.  We did all of our damage with 3" craw fish colored and Baby Bass Senkos dead drifted on red hooks.  The bites were subtle and we worked for our fish.  I think the cold front might have had a part in that.  Still, pretty nice fishing weather coming up for the week with the cool air temperatures in town.  Off to chase trout this morning.  Remmeber to clean your gear and keep the non-native species at home.  Have Fun, Willy
