And yet another morning outing into the great Utah outdoors does not disappoint. I drove this morning up into the Deer Creek area.
Right by the hydroelectric area of release into the Provo River, I saw some beautiful landscape scenes and found another fly fisherman trying to catch an early morning breakfast of rainbow trout.
I moved to a better location to photograph the fisherman. It didn’t take long for him to reel in at 15-inch rainbow trout. The series below shows the catch. You can click on the photos to enlarge and scroll through the series.
After he caught the fish, I moved in a bit closer to get a good shot of the fish. He was very eager to show me but as he did, the fish slipped out of his hands back into the water. He tried, but failed to snag the fish with his net.
He was not upset about it. He was catching and releasing today. He invited my to come back next Saturday. He says the river is packed with fly fisherman on Saturday mornings.
I can’t wait to see that.
