Kinnie

I was thinking of heading out to the Kinnie or Rush this weekend. How do you think the rivers are after all this rain? What hatches might be going on?

As of yesterday 5-25 they were both "off color" however, they will clear quickly. Sulphurs are hatching in good numbers with the best yet to come. March Browns should be along any day as well. This is the best time of year!

Wow!!! A Magneto sighting!!! About as rare as a Trico hatch in May! smile.gif How's fishing, Mike?

I fished Saturday and Sunday. Lost Creek and the middle portion of the Rush were like milk chocolate. The lower was a little better. I did find some great fishing on a couple of other streams in the area, including one 18" brown on the stream near the area where you pay for rabbit pellets to make big things get even bigger. Caught a Hendrickson hatch on another stream that seemed to be just west of the storm. Water was actually clear.

Fishing has been good... when I find the time. I started my own business last fall and I have been busier then I have in my entire life. Last year I was on the water 137 days, so far this year - 10 frown.gif

Nice to know I have a fan base. wink.gif

Fished the Lower Kinnie today. Caught 18 browns total. One double. Biggest was 14 inches. The rest were mostly 10-13 inches. Some pale afternoon duns hatching, but the trout weren't feeding on them, just the nymphs.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
