Question for ick-theologists:

Will moderate flood conditions during and immediately post spawning season's result in poor fishing in future?

If yes, when? If not, why not?

Some parts of Northeast have seen much higher-than-average rainfall in October and November. Species of particular interest is brook trout, but browns and rainbow certainly also exist.

Limping Crab -- With your current setup, how will we get you atop a ladder at Pyramid Lake? I am very impressed with your motivation. Way to get after it. Perhaps we should modify your name (temporarily) to Groveling Crab?

Hang in there buddy!

Crab you are one tough mutha. I guess your initial crawl
conditioned your knees for the river bank crawl.

Bro we need to get you some better friends. That guy you roll
With micro dot and vitals should be helping you to the river. They broke your legs man and then made you crawl out of the canyon, and they wonít even help you to fish. Iím suspect they set you up knowing that pitch was a fly and break your legs. Watch your back man who knows what else they have planned for you.

Iím sorry you are having to crawl to the bank of the river but I do give you the bad ass fisherman of the year award. Respect.

Iíll call you later today keep your spirits high man. The road is long so just take it one day at a time and be thankful you only broke your legs. We will be fishing soon.

New nickname I donít think so you are going to be a limping crab After all this.

Limping Crab -- Come on over the hill. The fishing is great again and a short walk (or crawl) from the truck. No poison oak, heavy packs, river crossing, or steep banks. Okay, well.... you will have to navigate, up close, face to feces, the many piles of cow dung on the way to the water. But heh, sh*t is water soluble, right?

Get better soon! And yes, we will carry you pharaoh style, feeding you grapes and fanning you, to the water's edge at the Pyramid. And, we will worship you.

Best,

jim

yes, Bob, Jim - I have 100 yards of white backing tied to 100 yards of yellow backing. This was the first time I have been into the yellow backing in a long time. Beautiful fish. My brother had an even larger one today. I think they are between 8 and 10lbs.

Micro you know that things from some deep dark phathom. I noticed that as well and was kinda wondering where he had been rooting around. It was crazy out there yesterday. Saw fish easy 10 plus pound fish just crushing bait balls. Jumping out of the water and putting on a show.

I will also need you to change the photo credit on your post. After this Iím going to be a huge fisherman and Iíll need the copyright © on that to pay the bills now that Iím not working anymore and just going to pyramid to beat my new personal best. Sorry! 🙄

Ok you posters get in the truck or car and come get some. There waiting for you to take a picture with them.
