I enjoy fishing the quinnie with my three weight because it makes it easier to get into the tighter spaces and underneath the vast amounts of tree and shrubs near the shore. The rod is an Echo and the reel is a Lamson 2 I got for dirt cheap because it was a "demo reel" at a fishing show. As noted above it improves the feel of the catch. Not to mention, it can make it easier on the smaller fish increasing survival chances after release. The feel is a huge plus, and it just looks damn good too.
Downstream I hit all the familiar runs pools and rifles about halfway to the rail trail bridge. Getting skunked there so I decided to make one last try at River rd above the resovoir. Water looked GREAT. There were even some caddies coming off, but nothing doing and after an hour I called it a day. My guess is the fish were put in at solely the northern section of River st/rd.
Did anyone else head out this past weekend? How'd you do?
Hears hoping to a full spring and summer of flies on the quinnie.
