If there was Grayling we wouldn't be able to fish for them outside trout season anyway would we?
Half day at work today so headed straight for the Urie.
Fairly blowy when I arrived and no sign of life so I stuck on some nymphs and headed upstream. Traveled about a mile and nowt nada nothing.
Decided that was far enough as I didn't have much time so stuck on a streamer and worked my way back down. Hadn't gone far and no pulls when I spotted a single olive on the water and then quickly a few more which were instantly greeted by a rise followed by 2 more seperate rises
Streamer off and a cdc&elk on and first cast hooked a half pounder which got off. Hooked another which also got off...grrrr
The third fish wouldn't be tempted and that was that pool fecked.
Headed further down to another streamy bit and sure enough just below it were a few more olives and 2 fish head and tailing mid stream.
Got both of these with one cast a piece both of them 10 inchers.
All in all a very enjoyable 2 hrs.
Anyone had any decent trout out of the urie or care to share tips on the better sections? Have fished it a fair few times and while plenty trout have never seen a decent one. I have the roving ticket so intend to make the Urie my Sunday spot, when I can get a sunday pass that is:z6
Any info shared is prob best by pm. I have a c&r ticket this year so no need to worry about any getting chapped.
