Glenn got right into the 58 degree water and started with his fly rod and floating line. I'm not sure what fly he was using. He had a couple of fly boxes and a bunch of flies.

I picked the spot where I fished back on June 7th and the only difference today was less water. The outcome was a little different for me this time, I didn't catch any, but Glenn managed three more. He was standing in the middle of the creek again. Note to self, stand in the middle of creek.
By 2:00 pm we were done for the day. On the walk back to the car, Glenn mention that he could see the benefit of using Tenkara on a streams like we fished today, but I don't think he's ready to plunk down the bucks. When I got home it was 94 degrees at my house so I imagine it was 90+ where we were. Very warm. When we got back to Glenn's motor home we sat and had a soda (Me) and a beer (Glenn) and talked about future trips on the American for Steelhead this coming Winter and Shad next Summer. There will still be our annual trip next 4th of July week. Since Glenn had such a good time with the fly rod and dry flies we'll just have to find a another good spot or two.
I'm off on vacation this Friday. The Wife and I are driving over to Mendocino, on the coast, for a few days so I'll take some pictures and do a couple of posts so you all can see what it looks like. I think you'll enjoy to views. I can't upload the pictures to my laptop because the program is not compatible with Windows 7 so I'll probably post and then upload the pictures when I get back on Tuesday.
Till then, stay cool.
