Angler Age: Epic

Angler Home: Central Ohio

Fishing Tackle: Fly Fishing

Fish Caught: Rainbow Trout

Rainbow Trout Caught: 16

Comments: Seven fly fishers from COFF group fished Wednesday and Thursday June 9th and 10th on the lower stretch, within one mile of the covered bridge while camping overnight in the rustic campground on the river. The river had about 2-3 ft. viz, and a comfortable flow level of 1.3 ft. Wet flies and small bead-head nymphs were the ticket, with yellow being the best color for success. The group as a whole caught 16 keeper sized rainbows. One had a severe raptor claw wound in it's back and was kept for the fisher's dinner. A good time was had by all, and we were pleased that there were still good numbers of rainbows in the river so late in the season when warm water mortality will soon be high.
