Fished today with Stanley the Fisherman and the water was high and muddy. We caught nothing, fished lures and live minnows. The bridge is being repaired but the stations were left in place so there is no real change to the river.

There were a lot of trout rising, used a black ant and couldn't get any strikes. Another fisherman who was throwing metal saw a buch of trout over the last few days but couldn't get anything to strike either. He said he saw a few real big ones. Attached photos.
