Rush River 06/06/09

DeLorme map page 59

This was fun. The Rush is normally slow, shallow and clear in the spot where we fished. In other words, the fish are usually ultra-spooky. Not this time.

It rained buckets the whole time we were there. We arrived at 3 pm and stayed until around 7. Since the rain was coming down in sheets, the fish could not see us as well and we could get fairly close to them.

There appeared to be a hatch of a size 10 or 12 brown mayfly. March Brown? Trout were nailing the nymphs. I caught 6 browns that put a bend in my rod on #10 beadhead prince nymphs about 18" below an indicator.

My brother caught a nice brown on a pink squirrel.
