Rainbows: not through the ice

Recommended Posts

8 degrees in early March! I just had to get out yesterday and do some river fishing. Lots of snow, but a great day to be out. I only got 3 fish, but it was good to be out.

It's fast water for sure. I was bottom-bouncing with 1/16 or 1/8 oz jigs.

 

Stoty, that is a hand-tied jig. It's a black wooly-bugger tied on a 1/16 oz jig head. I use hair as well, but this day it was the wooly-bugger that got all of them

Nice job on that beauty Bow and the jig!

 

Must be really satisfying to not only hook into fish like that with the conditions at this time of year, but to be able to trick 'em with something you tied yourself.. well that's like the icing on the cake.

 

Thanks for the post and pics!
