Lower Sac: , by Luke Geraty: Slow morning, good afternoon!: 3 stars

The day before my trip with John and John, the wind was looking perfect and I planned to float a lower section of the river. However, I woke up at 2:30am due to WIND and thought, "uh oh." By the time I got up to pour my first cup of coffee, around 6am, the wind was HOWLING and the wind app I used went from telling me it was going to be 3mph to 15-20! So I called the boys and since they were already on there way, we moved our float to a section that tends to be more "out of the wind" and give it our best shot. So how did it fish? Well despite our change to a different float, the wind was still pretty tough in the morning. I think we hooked two fish and despite changing flies a gazillion times and fishing EVERYTHING, the fish were just NOT eating... or our drifts were worse than we realized. It can be difficult knowing whether or not your getting a good drift in the wind because the boat is being blown everywhere and it's just plain impossible to know what's going on BELOW the surface (where it matters). But my best guess is the fish just weren't chowing down. But just before lunch we started connecting and even got a couple of doubles. Funny how the imaginary switch gets flipped and then the fishing starts getting good. The afternoon fished a little better and all in all I'd give the day a "good" on the rating scale. Slow morning, good afternoon. Can't say there was a specific bug they were eating as we literally went across the spectrum but the afternoon was all PMD's, as the fish were CLEARLY focused on those!
