We fished the headwaters of the Allegheny River with limited success twice over the last week. No bugs , low water and even stained water on our first day were all a factor. On the second day we dealt with strong winds.
But, we still caught some fish and had some “firsts”. Lance Hill and his daughter Johnna joined Ron Hill (fishing buddy and brother-in-law) on the 2nd day with the goal of catching fish on a fly rod. Mission accomplished! Lance caught 3 trout on a parachute Adams and Johnna hooked a fish on a dry fly too.
The second first: Ron hooked a 12″ rainbow on a crackle back. Then, a 20″ rainbow started chasing the hooked fish, grabbed the middle of the fish in its mouth and started running upstream. Looked like it was going to be a double catch, but the hooked fish was released by the big boy. Rats! Sounds like a fish story but I have a voucher.
