Latrine Run at Dawn

On Wednesday, April 29, I spent the dawn in a new spot on the Rocky River that will affectionately be known as Latrine Run for the landmark that sits just 20 yards from the river. The previous night Jim had landed double digits in the run and I figured it was worth exploring. The parking lot was empty before dawn and a few birds sang as I got rigged up. The fishing was good, but the highlight was walking to the spot at dawn. The river had dropped and the riffles held barely enough water to keep the fish upright. I could see the backs of several steelhead sticking out of the water and shimmering in the early light. It is amazing how little water it takes to hold these massive fish.
