Adrian Psuty and myself lead a group of 4 anglers through the trails of Putah creek in search for resident and migratory trout. We did a half-day and were able to stick several dozen resident rainbows. Many of them came on larger mayfly and caddis patterns. We fished many smaller insects with little success. The flows were great (280cfs) and fishing pressure was low for a weekend. Fishing this creek can be fun if you get water to fish.
Most of us are busy with life and have a hard time getting out to recreate. Sometimes we find ourselves questioning whether we should fish or not. Is the weather right, do I have time, will I catch something, what do I use… sound familiar? I have a motto that helps me skip the dichotomous decision making process of whether to fish or not. When in doubt, fish!
