I finally took the opportunity to get out on the water for the first time in a while on Sunday June 26th, 2022. I took Katy the wonder dog with me up the hill early in the morning. We started off at Cole Creek, but the water was too skinny and the footing too treacherous for a 15-year-old chocolate lab. I managed to get a few casts in, but did not see any fish.
After loading Katy up, I headed around the hill and down into the North Fork Mokelumne River Canyon. It was a beautiful morning for a drive. I was scouting for a place with good fishing and easier access for Katy. I found the spot at the Devil\'s Nose Whitewater Put-in. Access was great, but Katy wanted to wander all over the place and I only managed a few casts before giving up the idea of fishing to spend time walking Katy. I did not see any fish there either. I know I have caught them there in the past, maybe I was too early for dry flies... The area is beautiful though.
I loaded Katy up and drove up to Salt Springs Reservoir, then back down, looking for another spot she might be able to access. Most of the banks of the river in this area are steep and covered in boulders. I decided to call it a day and headed home around noon.
