    Fished the chagrin this morning with Archman. Flow was 139cfs when i left the house.

    Flow was good, color was good. Fishing could have been better, but we did manage some fish.

    Jig/Maggot as well as spawn was working. Bite would turn on, people would lite them up, then 10 minutes later nothing for hours. Rinse and repeat that for the day.

    I was glad to have the day off, and get some fish.

    All in all both Archman and I got a few. I ended up with 4 fish for the day. Broke off some others, but I had to go to a 4lb leader due to water clarity, hence the added breakoffs.

    Water clarity should continue to get better throughout the week. Flow was just about perfect at around 135-139cfs today.

    We watched several others on the river today hook into fish as well.

  2. Ben, after I left you I did a little better. I ended up getting 4 more in about an hour. I think we did the right thing, though. I talked to a guy there and he said it was really slow in the morning.

    The first fish I caught after I left had this huge gash in it. He didn't put up much of a fight, and then when I released him he was swimming kind of funny. If you look at the picture, from the gash to the head he was dark, and behind the gash he was silver. It's not the light playing tricks on your eyes, that's really how it looked.

    It was a good morning to be out. I expected more crowds today, but really, it was kind of light. My last fish might have been the biggest of the season so far.
