    Just Too Nice

    NATIONAL PARK MEADOW
    3:40 PM, September 28, 2008
    66 Degrees Fahrenheit
    .. Caddis just starting, dead calm, wispy con trails, hoppers in the grass, no one on the water, just a few cars leaving the park, elk bugling in the distance, honkers sunning themselves, fish at the surface in mid day, AND two days until October. It can't get any better!
    .. The caddis are small, the hoppers are too. The fish are eating both: sticks, twigs, grass, ants, and other bits of flotsam as well. The little fish, (to 9",) are frenzied. The larger fish are lethargic and just nibbling away. Nosing around might be the way to put it. Don't be too anxious, the little ones will hook themselves, the bigger ones will tug the line and let you know.
