It rained something fierce here last night and most of the day today. I’ve been bent on spending most of this and next weekend fishing before the season ends, so when the rain let up later this afternoon I took a drive out to the Credit. I knew what I was getting myself into of course, but I was hoping by some miracle that the river would not be complete chocolate. Well, it was running close to a foot higher than a week ago and as for colour, I’ll let this picture do the talking:
I obviously didn’t attempt to fish this, which was too bad because the sun had just come out and there was a nice hatch going on. Apparently the Grand was still running nice and low today, but I’m sure they’ll dump Belwood Lake sometime soon and change that real fast.
Thanks for your information. I also gave up to fish credit river at recent days.
Maybe I need to wait for 2~3 days for normal water lever.
There is almost real time information about the water level and air temperature of credit river. Please refer to the following link.
Dude…..Those are absolutely perfect conditions for streamer fishing. Next time, pull out the giant flies, tie on some 0x tippet and start ripping those streamers through the pools. You’ll be surprised!
That’s a good point Dave. I’ve never been one to give high muddy water a go, but I suppose I should! Next year I’ll have to give it a shot.
