Had a ton of laundry to do and needed some country air, so I headed up to the lake in DuBios after work Saturday. Awoke Sunday to overcast skies and tired eyes that kept my from heading to fish Spring Creek. Spent the day doing laundry and exploring the lake on the kayak with the 6wt. Picked up a few nice panfish and bass on a hopper dropper.
The first few runs were free and I gave them a look but didn't see any fish. Continued down to a spot that held nice fish and was a great section last year for trico's. Fished a bwo barrs emerger with a sz 20 string thing to sighted fish with varied success. The fish were in the summer time game of hugging the banks and rocks. Picked up about a dozen nice fish sight nymphing.
Fish started rising as I decided to make the drive back home. They were taking midges and I didn't feel like doing that game. As I undressed at the car two other anglers were hurrying to the stream. They wanted to know why I was taking my boots off. "Kinda a long drive home", I replied with a grim, "Pittsburgh". The one guy called me crazy.
