The lack of rain gave me an excuse to break out the spey rod and practice some casting on the Rocky River. I was too lazy to make the trek to the Grand River, perhaps the only river with enough water to make it worth fishing.
Casting went better than expected considering I hadn't cast the rod in several months. Hopefully there will be some real rain sometime soon and we'll get the long-awaited fall run of fish.
The lack of water today left the steelhead nowhere to hide and they chose the lake over the river.
I was surprised mid-morning by a small sucker, which hit the minnow fly. Not what I was hoping for, but it was a fish nonetheless.
