Rumors or huge browns hiding in the confluence with that bigger creek at the end of the downcanyon hike but I only ever walked the whole way once and my huge fly fishing box was back n the truck.

    I tried to fish on sunday and seemed to follow the rain storms and me n the boy caught skunks. I tried to fish on monday and fubared my back putting on my fishing pants. Switched plans to harrassing planters at tibble fork putntake. Nubby finned fuckers were besides themselves for purp woolinugger. Fished AF river below TF hoping salmotrutta survived the mudflow from dam reconstruction. Fished hard and stomped through a bit of good holding water and.didnt move a fish. Rock check no caddis midges or annelids. Pretty sure that river is dead. Bummer it was a gem.

    At least the pupper we are watching enjoyed his first fish sniffens

    Spent the weekend at Willard Bay. Got up Saturday, cooked breakfast on my newest favorite camping toy, I highly recommend a Blackstone 17" tabletop griddle. The thing runs on green propane cylinders and has plenty of room to cook up whatever you want. Walked the dyke after that, saw one group of carp and a couple feeding solos. I tried casts to all of them, finally on my third attempt I was able to put it in the general vicinity of one, but no dice. (Then proceeded to whip my fly off on a backcast.)

    Went out that evening and dragged a worm around to no avail, strong winds came up and made for tough rowing to get back to shore. Went out yesterday evening as well, strong winds at first kept me near shore but then it calmed down. I ventured out a few hundred yards from shore, sipping my water bottle of wine and dragging a fruitless worm around.

    After a couple hours of this the water bottle of wine was empty and I felt an urge to pee. I noticed that I was now about 400 yards from shore. I also realized that the urge was getting worse. I started rowing towards shore, as I got closer rowing a bit faster. About a hundred yards from shore the urge was now a full blown, oh shit I've gotta piss, bad. I frantically oared through brush as the fullness in my loins became a burn. About 10 yards from shore it was now past the point of holding it, I jumped out of the pontoon as a couple squirts went into my waders. I'd already unclipped them in anticipation of reaching shore, and at that point threw them down and released my member and it's already started stream. As I sat there in relief my urine flowed and I noticed that my bluetooth speaker that until that point had been playing music encouraging me to row faster had quit playing music. Hmm, that's strange?

    I finish my relieving business and pull up my waders, I look down into the pocket my iPhone once resided in and see nothing. Fuck, my six month old iPhone X is now on the bottom under about 3 feet of water. Of course we're at a slightly wind whipped shore and the water is murky as fuck. I instantly go down to my chin trying to find it. My fleece soaking up water like it's going out of style. I searched for several minutes and took a break to remove the fleece. Now clad in a t-shirt I once again go up to my chin determined I'm not walking away without the $1200 toy. Several more minutes I feel it and triumphantly bring it out of the water!

    It lights up immediately and lets me know there are several notifications. One of which should be, "You're a fucking moron, don't put me in an open pocket again." I pulled the pontoon up on shore and decided that was probably enough for the night. Walked back to the campsite and the wife immediately noticed I was soaking wet, lol. Once I got back the phone stopped face ID'ing, and the speaker doesn't work and other strangeness. Apparently 3-5 minutes under water doesn't do a "water resistant" iPhone much good. It's now in a tupperware bowl of rice and a bit of cotton.

    I've also been googling "cleaning pee out of waders." to varying degrees of humor.

    I drove up a canyon and fished a spring creek near a ski jump right by some mtb trails behind a brewery and caught a fish on a fly I tied myself while wetwading in chacos. Click image for larger version.

    I thought that was all fenced off and private property? There’s some open water there?

    fun weekend on the Cape. tons of fish, though nothing larger than schoolie size.



    had to fish the big ditch at least once








    fishing in my old stomping grounds provided some of the most consistent action






    then the weather turned


    made my way out to the elbow of the Cape




    birds were working good on Sunday. the fish were pushing bait up on the flats, chaos within arms reach







    it's good reset once in awhile and get away from the bs, been too long for me. I ate when I was hungry and slept when I was tired and didn't really think of much other than where I was going to fish next. sure was tough going back to work yesterday.

    I’ve caught Cutties in high mountain lakes like that, they were gorged fat on whatever they eat up there, (probably skuds), and they could barely swim.

    Hahaha. 14 minutes? Pull sideways dude. Pull the opposite direction of whatever way he's facing.

    Nice fish, Bob. Nice little spot you got there.

    It was 14 minutes after I’d chatted with Golden Boy. I’d been there for and hour and half before that. The carps were cruising, spawning type stuff, not many eaters.

    Been working on the cast, I saw the guy I caught, hit ahead of him and stripped him into an eat.

    I’m fine with the fight, although I think I lost my first eat on a looped up rig. Casting is my weak point so far.

    It appears to be lordosis. Were your fish stockers? Kinda looks like a stocker with those washed out colors and its size. Skeletal deformities commonly occur in hatchery fish that are raised in poor conditions but it occurs naturally as well. I'd guess that deformed wild fish tend to be culled by predation before they get to the size that we might catch and observe them.

    One can find ridiculous "football" shaped trout occurring naturally but this doesn't seem to fit the bill for that. Those are common in extremely fertile waters (mysis tailwaters, shallow lakes loaded with scuds, rivers with large shad populations) but those are just fat fish. They have a potbelly as well as a hump. Cook up a football and you'll notice the dorsal area and belly meat is loaded with fish oil. They have disproportionate girth to length due to a high fat diet. This fish looks stunted and deformed, not fat. Thus, I'd guess it is a recently planted stocker afflicted with lordosis.

    Don't think it was a stocker - at least I couldn't find the creek on the CO stocking report. It is only about ten feet wide and I only saw similar sized fish. A Google search for humpback brown trout had results for a study done on fish in the Bighorns where it's more common. Said they were healthy, and not inbred, but had some fused vertebrae. That sounds similar to lordosis?

    I've only caught one football-shaped rainbow. Definitely more fun than Quasimodo.
