Fishing Like The SF Giants

Being the San Francisco Giants are the "home" team, I've been watching them on Comcast Sports Net via Dish. Well, the last two days (Saturday & Sunday) have been exciting. The Giants were in first place in the NL West. That was until yesterday. See, the Dodgers beat the Giants 10-0 on Saturday and 4-0 yesterday. To be shut out two games in a row by the Dodgers hasn't happened since the Dodgers were in Brooklyn in 1957. The summer of 1957 I was 10 years old.

So, what does this have to do with fishing today? I fished a good 3/4 mile of the Middle Fork of the Cosumnes (water temp 56.7 degrees) above the bridge at PIPI Valley Campground and, although I got drive bys and hit and runs, I couldn't bring one to hand any more than the Giants could score a run in the last two games. The score today was fish 12 or so and Mark 0.No doubt a shut out in the eyes of the fish.

To as insult to injury, I had one fish, in a specific run, that I drifted an orange stimulator past six times and all six times he took a swat at it, but not once was I able to hook him.

Got plans for a new spot Thursday or Friday. I'll let you know how it goes.

  4. i had a spell like that as well, conditions don't match up to one's desire to catch em sometimes. it will either keep you coming back for more or eventually break you. i opt for the first ;)
