One Beautiful Night

It was warm and bright on Wednesday. That doesn’t usually make for very good fishing, but the sunshine felt so good after all of our cold this spring that I had to give it a try anyway.

I headed to an upstream stretch of the Pine River. The water level was just about ideal, having come back down from the recent rain. That made the wading easy.

The weather was absolutely perfect for a pleasant evening on the river. This was one of the best five or six most enjoyable after work trips ever. The big fish weren’t biting much. I did hook a couple, but I couldn’t land them. 

I did catch eight small browns, but tonight it wasn’t just about the fish. It was nice to be outside at night wearing a short sleeve shirt.
