Opening Day 2017

We moved Opening Day 2017 up one day to avoid some nasty weather forecast for Saturday.  Our opening day crew from the California Walnut Company enjoyed a beautiful day and some great fishing.  It definitely felt like the calm before the storm.  When we arrived fish were cruising and midging in the surface film.  The fishing was red hot in the morning, with fish hooked on every 2nd or 3rd cast for much of the morning.  After lunch the fishing slowed down a little, but fishing was still productive.  The hot flies today were brown rubberlegs size 8 and olive crystal buggers size 8.  Some fish were caught on smaller nymphs, too.  The average fish was around 5 pounds.  The biggest I saw landed was about 10 pounds.  One of our guests reported landing fish up to 28".
