I started running down the creek and did not make it a mile when I saw a few little birds diving.

Water temps above Hwy 65

Got in the waters later than desired which ended up being around lunch time. We fished until about 4 then started our journey back to the truck.
Lost a few flies due to snagging a million times but it's all good. Fishing is fishing. Started to add some tippet

Think the water was at least a foot lower than our last trip with quite a bit of grass so maybe that's why they were locked up. Spent the day on the water with son though and
