“My goal today was to get out and do some fishing.
I did that, so my day was a success.”
—John Gierach, author, commenting on a fish-less outing
I met my own goal of getting out to fish the Hexagenia hatch at Lake Almanor a couple nights ago. It wasn’t a fish-less outing, but it was darn close. The hatch was rather sparse. It doesn’t seem to have caught the attention of the fish yet. In normal years the hatching insects are more numerous and attract large numbers of hungry fish. That has not happened yet this year.
