Yuba egg madness 10-15 with Brian Clemens
Permalink  
 


I had a great time with guide Brian Clemens last Wednesday on the Yuba. It is rare that I ever leave the water satisfied; there's typically a feeling of "Just one more...."  There were PLENTY of willing fish last Wednesday going nuts for Brian's particular hand crafted eggs.

He not only knew where the fish were (not a significant mystery during the egg bite I guess) but he was also willing to go the extra bit and actually get out of the boat and literally point out the biggest fish in the bunch to target.  I felt like I was on a stalk.  The sensation of targeting the one fish and getting it right where they want it - PRICELESS.  

 

At the end of the drift, we were all alone on the river.  The last stretch had a couple redds that held a half dozen larger trout.  One of which took me to my backing before Brian ran him down:

Fantastic day, great guide.  Wish my dad could have gone....

Brian is a great steward for the fish.  He demonstrates and expects low impact fish handling from his clients.  I think the fish in the water (or quickly lifted and replaced ASAP) make the best photos anyway.  I don't necessarily need my ugly mug to ruin the shot!
