Here's an unusual big, the stick bug, as it rested on the side of our house the other day. Pretty cool, but it doesn't look like something trout would be able to eat, although I imagine if one were blown onto the water near a feeding lie, it would elitcit a splashy rise. As you can see, my photos don't compare to J.B.'s.......I'd love to see how he would frame this one.
And here's another fine photo I took of another visitor to our home. This is one serious spider. About an inch from jaws to the end of its abdomen!! And how about that pattern on its back, nature's paint brush at its best.
As for fishing, it ain't happening for me right now. The state did stock our major rivers and streams this week, so there are plenty of trout in them to be caught. Despite the recent rains we have had, the rivers continue to be on the low side. I guess it was so dry for two straight months, the ground water table needs to come up before the streams will recover to normal levels. Hopefully, I'll get out for a couple of hours this week before heading back to Boston later in the week for a spell. I think I have to find some streams up there to fish, too..........
The guys who are fishing, are taking fish on small BWO emergers, midges and caddis on the surface. If you want to take one of the big breeders they stocked this week, your best bet is a woolley bugger.
The stink bugs are another import from our good friends in far east. I know an exterminator that can kill them. As for an imitation for the rivers, just use label of a UPS box and spray some cat pee on it.
I'm not so sure about the UPS label....right shape, wrong size and a tad sticky. The cat pee.....I was wondering what it was I smelled on those flies you gave me the other day........
