Labor Day Browns

Headed out to a nearby brown trout fishery. When September arrives the lake really begins turning on and it seems to get better and better the later we get into the year. I met up with Adam and Christine in their drift boat which also served as a floating microbrew bar. I was float tubing for the day. The crowds were surprisingly low, so much so that I was the only person on the lake when I arrived mid morning. We proceeded to get into many browns with a few snake river cutthroats also in the mix. The fish were on midges and we were able to keep feeding them a steady diet of matching flies. Only one storm ran us off in the early afternoon after which we returned to a few more fish before the final storm squall coming over the mountains ended the day. A satisfying way to spend the holiday and a nice start to the week.
