Even though i knew better I tried to fish Melones today. Wore a poncho for 5 hours. Threw multiple lures, baits, for zero bites... Kastmasters in gold/rainbow on 4 lb test, chart garlic PB and inflated crawlers, even tried to float one under a slip bobber at 8', even threw a WB and a egg sucking leech for awhile. Used scent....

For not even a nibble.

I fished the cove to the west of the 49'er bridge on the Tuolumne side, water looked great. One helluva walk down to the water with the snot mud.

Skunk #1 of '14 in the books.

How was the water clarity? Nice to see water running thru the little creeks again. Our pasture looks like a small lake, and I saw numerous little rock slides on PF road today on my way to work up in Cedar Ridge. Ground went from bone dry to saturated in short order. We needed rain, and we sure got it.

I would of gladly been out there as well, even if I got a skunk. Can't catch them if your not fishing. I'm sure things are going to really pick up here soon.

Water was still gin clear, that cove looks so good, but has never really produced well for me tbh. I've trolled the mouth of it for kokanee and caught fish. I was going to go to GH but the weather and I did not want to waste the $8 getting in.

Yea I came home and all my dumbass chickens decided they wanted to play in the rain and get soaked...so that was fun tending to. Getting a turkey next week probably...( a live one not for shooting). He's a cross between a wild and a domesticated (white bird) hes boss.

It should be great fishing in a few of the spots we've talked about, couple days of good weather and I bet it's on.

Hopefull he has enough wild blood in him to keep him from drowning in the rain. Domestic turkeys is dumm.
