How Was The Fishing?
Good

We fished duck valley, bruneau sand dunes pond, and CJ strike on a camping trip for the weekend. At duck valley we fly fished and caught nearly 40 fish total, probably lost another 20 easily. The fish were in great shape, lots of jumpers, nothing smaller than 16" and a couple around 20-21". At the beginning of the day all they would take were leeches, red and brown. Later they would only take damsel nymphs.

 

We caught bluegill and bass at bruneau dunes but man the mosquitos are bad. Leeches and tiny nymphs caught bluegill. Bigger flies caught bass. Saw one guy pull out an 18" hog.

 

CJ was a little ho hum. Caught a few small bass and enough crappie for one meal. I think the spring bite is finally slowing down there now.
