Spent 11 hours at Knights Ferry today. I caught some fish, lost some fish, got squirted by rafters with water cannons; read my new Gierach book on the shore, fell asleep on the shore then woke up to ants sleeping in my leg hair. Pretty good day. Had success with the usual hare’s ear and a nice burnt orange pupa I picked up at Ted Fay Fly Shop in Dunsmuir. Once I had lost all the patterns that were working for me, I turned to the pupa and it turned out to be really fishy.
With the flows just over 400 cfs, Knights Ferry has been fishing well, but apparently the flows will be going back up to 2000 this week. It was fun while it lasted.
