North Fork Mokelumne Trip Report 4-27-14

I took Katy the Wonder Dog out for her first fishing adventure today.  I decided that I would take her to one of my favorite local spots, the NF Mokelumne below Tiger Creek Afterbay.    I got in some casting practice to help knock off the cobwebs on my bad casting.

Katy had a blast running around throught he bushes exploring.  Why did I call her Katy the Wonder Dog?  Every time I turned around I was wondering where she had taken off to.  Luckily for me the dam halts upstream progress and it was easier to figure out where she was.

I managed to hook one little rainbow on an EC Caddis, had it on briefly before losing it, before the fishing cooled off.  I was concentrating so hard on where my casts were falling and how the fly was drifting that I did not notice that Katy the Wonder Dog had come out to see what I was doing.  I guess I should call her the Wonder Dog because I was wondering why I wasn't having any luck.  I turned and looked upstream and this is what I found...

She was intently watching me fish the run and pacing back ad forth on top of this rock.

I decided that the fishing would have to wait and I took her farther upstream to fish above the afterbay.  There were a few of the local residents that ran us off...

Unfortunately there were too many dogs up there above the afterbay for me to get any fishing done in between wondering where Katy went, so we headed home.
