Trials and Tributaries

An Dinh

Father's day is the time to be up in the high Uintas.  Jac and I ventured up to the trial lake area the following week.  While there were a few tiger trout eager to hit a dry fly on the tribs, many of the fish had come through and moved on.  We ran into a few fisherman who had been there just 2 days before and found scores of fish eager to hit a fly. 

Here's a short video of us casting in a serene spot, but to no avail.

Trial lake offered a few fish up, but the best fishing was right in the little bay where we launched the raft.   I rowed to far end and back again twice.  Twice because I left my rod up against a pine tree at the far end when I took a potty break. 

I got to test out the new counter weights on the oars and they make a big difference.   Even rowing against 15 mile per hour gusts I was able to row over the white caps back to our little bay and finally catch a few fish.
