EF Sevier July 4
After fishing high on the mountain Friday, I decided to hit the EF Sevier on Saturday. Mardi wanted to sleep in, and opted out. Half way to the river I realized that I had left my phone back at the house. Oh well. No pictures today -- maybe that means I'll catch the "big one"?!
I hit the EF in Black Canyon around 8:30am. I wanted to fish a spot that I'd passed on last trip. I was the only truck in the parking area, and had the whole river to myself.....or so I thought. After fishing the first couple holes I heard another vehicle pull in. Then I saw three people hit the river just above me -- they cutt me off. My initial reaction was "****!". But I then just figured, "oh well". I knew there was a lot more river available, and my truck was close, so I just jumped in the truck and drove upstream to another section.
Fishing was tough. It took some effort to entice the few fish I caught to come play. They just were not aggressive. I was able to find myself 5 fish. A 4" cutthroat, a couple 14" browns, an 18" cutthroat, and a 20" brown.
The cutthroat was impressive! It was FAT!! And very colorful too -- much more colorful than the average sevier river cutt. I was more thrilled with that cutt than the bigger brown. I don't know...I guess i just have a thing for cutthroat?
Wish I would have had my camera...
Too many managers manage by what the postgame press conference is going to be.
