Dave Law and the Fishing Forecast: The Weather was Red-Hot on the Spokane River...The Fishing?

Posted: Updated:
The Weather was Red-Hot on the Spokane River & forecast was for temperatures to reach 100 degrees, so an early start was a smart choice. We set off at 8am to float down the river from the Maple Street Bridge to the TJ Meenach take out (4 mile trip) and managed to get off the water by 2pm. River flow was about 1500cfs and very fishable. I floated with Stann Grater (Fishing Professor from Gonzaga) & Jeff (former guide) the 1st day, the with Randy Dingman (Idaho River Guide) the next. We were casting nymphs primarily. I must say, I did a ton of casting, mending, tying, etc...and had a tough time coaxing a strike. After a slow start, Jeff found his mojo & landed fish consistently. Seems like a larger fly (#10) was the way to go for the upper nymph. Overall, the fish were very finicky, but when a Red-Band hit...the strikes were powerful (and sometimes unforgiving on the 5X leader)! Since my luck was slow, I've got something to prove...Me versus the Spokane Red-Band Rainbow "Part II" coming this fall.
