The Blackfoot still remains high and off color, but the levels have come down some and I resorted to fishing the mouths of some incoming creeks.
I threw some flashy streamers to start and landed a cuttbow right off the bat. The fish hit pretty hard and even took a few leaps... It was a great feeling after not catching a fish for over 2 weeks.
I had already experienced a little bit of hail on the road, but I soon got the up close and personal experience. For a few minutes some serious hail came down, with some of them being almost the size of a dime. Yup, it hurt and I almost had to take shelter. My car turned out to be fine. Just like on the road, I experienced almost every form of precipitation I know of. Gotta love Montana weather!
I lost two more fish on the day while nymphing. One of the fish was a decent cutty which I lost after a couple minute fight. Very frustrating. Either way I had a nice afternoon. I missed fishing the Blackfoot very much over the winter months.
