The mosquitoes were out in force for the first time tonight when I fished an upstream section of Willow Creek after work. This area is a little swampy and pretty overgrown later in the season, so May is a good time to tackle it.
I started seeing trout right away, and even had a few bumps early on. It didn’t take too long to land the first trout.
The water level was up a little, but not too bad. This stretch is pretty tight with overhanging brush, although the wading was reasonable.
I quit a little early because I was starting to encounter deadfalls and the mosquitoes were starting to distract me.
Even so, I finished with an even dozen brown trout for my efforts.
I completed the drive back home by about 8:30 PM.
