I found some little mullet hugging tight to a reef. A mud boil. Then another. Just the kind of things I was looking for. I staked out and tossed out one pattern that didn’t work, Black and Tan, hmm...the signs were there, try something different. An olive crack fly. Bingo, fish on. Never really moved until I got three slots and a bunch of sub slots on the olive crack and then went to a gartside soft hackle streamer that looks a lot like a mullet and that caught the best slot of the day, 23”, plus some other smaller fish. Everything was in about 18” of water.
I moved around a little more looking for sign, but didn’t see much until almost back at the launch. Staked out and caught another little red, had a good take, and caught a 14.5” trout. Back at the launch and on the road to home at 15:00. What a great day to feel the sun and enjoy some time on the water.
