American RIver: The Study of Swingology

Thanks to Andy Guibord for taking these photos and to Jason Hartwick for fluffing up a few fish. This fish ate a 2.5" mess of marabou.

American: Monday the 16th

Had the pleasure of guiding Rob and Sam and we put the screws to 'em. Overall we hooked enough fish to last a week! We managed to land a few fish in the 3-5 pound class... pictures to follow. We worked the water meticulously and found some very aggressive fish. They were still on eggs and various small mayfly patterns. We had almost perfect weather with light rain most of the day and a few brief downpours. The wind was a little intense, but we pushed though and prevailed. All and all a great day, good company, cooperative fish and great weather. Thanks boys!

With all this rain, look for a boost in steelhead fishing everywhere!

Also, it is time to hit the Yuba. I will be guiding out there all next week.
