The Water is on the Rise

The last couple of days have tortured me. the fish have been very active and i have had my ass handed to me for the most part. i've landed a few fish but other then 20"er they have all been, what i call next years fish. by that i mean 12-15"fish, so next year they will be good fish. the water had jumped up a little earlier in the week but was still really clear. this morning i went out and the level had come up a little more and had some chocolate to it. didn't seem to affect the streamer fishing any as the fish were all over me. unfortunately i got spanked again today. moved a lot of fish, including one that i know would have gone 22-24", lost 2 really nice fish, got hit a lot and landed a few of next years fish. the last fish that i hooked came flying out of the water and when he did i was surprised that i still had him on. on his second jump he jumped right on shore and it was then, flopping around on the rocks, trying his best to come free, that he spit my hook and flopped right back into the water and swam away. unfricking believable! i get him on shore and i still can't land him. that's the way it's been for me the last couple of days

At least you are getting out, any day is a good day if it's on the river.
