First Outing of 2011
A friend of mine, Greg, and I decided to hit the river yesterday for a go at some smallies. This was my first outing of 2011. Up until this past week the temps here have been in the low 30s. This past week they hit the high 60s and low 70s. Anyways, we decided to hit the Potomac River. There is a warm water discharge area from a Pepco plant that the fish love to hangout at so we decided to go there. I brought my 5wt with a sinking line and my eel worms. I managed to get three strikes. That was it. All day. I did manage to fall on the rocks and almost split my head open. Instead, I only managed to smash my knee into a rock. It hurt. All night. In the end though I realized that it was nice to just be out and about and to shake the cobwebs off. Trout season is just around the corner so maybe I will have better luck with them!
