Walk Wade

Never thought I would be wading the Rocky River in my Chaco sandals and quick dry pants in March. It happened yesterday and although the hot weather is not helping the fish, I felt like I was back out west walking trout streams in late July. 

Timber and I went to check out the scene on the Rocky yesterday afternoon.  The water had a nice color to it and the banks were giving up lush greens with new spring foliage. 

I believe the weather is supposed to cool off this weekend to give these fish a break.  If you are out and are into to fish, try to get them back in the water and on their way as fast as possible.  Water temps this high raise mortality rates in fish greatly, so if your out do your part and take care of the fish.




  1. Hmm... trying to figure out where you are at here. We were out there yesterday afternoon too, in the backside runs behind the golf course. Lost one, saw 5 roll up on the surface.

  2. ; ) didnt see another fisherman between 3-6pm top secret haha def the rocky

    1. Oh I'll find it. I know the general area you're in just by looking at these photos and those plants... just have to narrow it down :)

  3. Oh man, my son John and I just spent the day with Owen on the Rocky River. We lost count of how many fish we landed, and no idea how many we had on. I have fished all over and have to say Owen is one of the best guides I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Thanks, buddy, for a great day!!! I can't wait to see the pictures!

  4. Oh, and nice picture of the ramps, hope you remember the recipe we gave you. If you forgot, give a call.
