West Branch Thursday + Kank Sunday

Late on this one. Full summer pattern on the Dupe. Low water and clear, maybe 70cf/s. Eel grass bad in some sections of a long stretch I fished. Chunks came out to play though, 18", two 17ers, several in 15-16" range, plus shorts.

Hit the Kank early on Sunday until 12:30ish to beat most of the heat. Never been down there but a buddy who called me wanting to fish for cats the night before got my sheltered ass out. Very nice river and looked really healthy. Reminded me of a rocky version of the lower Wisconsin River. Buddy got a nice channel within a minute of setting his lines. Wet waded around with no idea of how to fish the river but managed a handful of dinks and a dink out of Rock Creek. Cf/s around 2100 and fairly clear. Definitely will be back after reading some of Norm's old posts.

Thanks for the post. The old board has been lacking lately.

What Joe said.
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
