I’ve set a borderline unfeasible challenge for myself this week of catching one big fish on the Last Chance section of the Henry’s Fork every day this week that I’m there. That’s Tuesday through Saturday on one of the most exciting yet difficult dry fly fishing places on earth. And all but one of these days will be far from full days of fishing. With this in mind, my writing will be minimal because fishing for these brutes and getting ready to leave for Baja Sunday takes priority.
Let’s just say that Tuesday was one of the great days on the Last Chance section. The weather was a heck of a lot better than last week. I caught eight big rainbows ranging from 18” to 21”. Just a couple fish 18” or better on this section is a good day. The Pale Morning Dun hatch and the caddis hatch were unbelievable!
I’m home now catching up on things and plan to return to the Fork tomorrow evening. I’ll have about three hours to land the big fish of Thursday. This short session won’t be easy to produce; however Friday’s fish could even be harder. Friday morning comes after the Trout Hunter Ranch Opener Party. Who knows how fast I’ll be moving. Also, I’ll only have about three hours to fish on Friday morning before returning home again to work and pack.
Stay tuned. . . . . .
