Nice Weather Don't Mean Shit

So this was the first time me and Dbone had fished together. we met up at a place he hadn't fished before and was anxious to give it a go. i was anxious to cause the weather was supposed to be in the high 40's and i wanted to fish higher then i had fished before and see what the river had to offer up there. the weather did not disappoint but the fish certainly did. right away i landed a small 13ish inch fish and as i was releasing it, DNR showed up to check our licenses, it was good to see. yes we both had ours. dbone did ask him if we were legal to fish upstream. the officer said he hated it when people ask him that question cause he wasn't totally sure. i told him i have fished there numerous times and have had land owners come down while i was fishing and be friendly to me and make small talk. he said if the people don't seem to care then so be it. we fished well into virgin territory for me and even though we covered such a long stretch we only moved a small handful of fish and only landed a few but we both landed 1 fish that measured right at 20" so it was not all lost. the long walk back was tiring and sweaty and i couldn't wait to discard all the clothes i was wearing.
