McCloud River, August 15th

Noemi with the fish of the day Charles, Isabella, Max & Noeni

Charles came up and fished with John Rickard a few weeks ago and had such an exceptional experience he decided to share it with his entire family.  All of them are new to the sport and the McCloud can be a bit technical this time of year.  No worries, they were all quick studies and each caught some wild rainbows while Max and Noeni who had not held a rod before caught several including a couple very fine specimens.  The nymphing during the day was quite good and we found fish in most all the places we expected.  We couldn’t wait for the evening hatch when things would really get going.  Unfortunately on this day the evening rise never quite developed.  We continued to fish until dark hoping the hatch was just compressed.  We continued to find fish with nymphs but nothing much with the dry flies ;>(  I guess they’ll just have to return again soon to experience some McCloud dry fly magic.
