Yesterday was the start of the early catch and release season, but I waited until today so temperatures would be above freezing. I fished a part of the Mecan River that is open for the early season.
I started seeing browns, some of them whoppers, as soon as I got in the river. I saw over a hundred fish and had 30 or 40 of them follow the lure, bump it, or lightly suck it in. But they just weren’t in the mood to chomp down. I think the water might have been a little cold for them today.
I waded a mile and I didn’t land my first fish until I had gone ¾ mile. It wasn’t a big one, but I was happy to avoid the skunk.
I caught two more below the bridge where I climbed out. That was it for the first outing of the year – 3 brown trout.
