Worth the wait

Pulling on the waders, lacing the boots, slipping quietly into the river. Someone pinch me. Trout season is highly anticipated around here. We patiently have to wait for the tube hatch to quit occurring and the river to calm down before it is accepted to start chasing them again.
The weather has started to cool down and trout have been stocked. It's a little frustrating to be in such clear water that does not flow very fast due to lack of rain and have trout all around you, yet they are spooked easily and hard to catch.
The fishing has been good. All of the fish shown were caught by nymphing. Not much luck with streamers but the good news is the evening hatch has started making the dry bite better.
Can't go wrong with some PB&J for a river lunch
