Today was a derail from the word go.
Took my birthday off and was on my way to fish Terrell before it closes October 1st and decided on the fly to stop and fish Samish.
I was the only one there and that should have been my first clue. The water is cloudy, not normal for this typically clear lake. Add to that the shallows are so choked with weeds I may as well have been fishing Terrell! Tried a couple of my spots with one dink smallie to show for it. I pulled the plug 90 minutes in and headed for Terrell as originally planned.
Water temps were low 60's and it was raining lightly.
