Yuba 2/1/13

Well I got skunked on the Yuba again. I committed to throwing dries and I guess my patterns weren't up to the standards of the fish this past trip.
It was a great day though. Sunny and about 70 degrees. 1400 CFS.
Everyone I spoke to on Friday was having a pretty tough day.
The Skwalas are around but not in big numbers. I saw a lot of Skwala nymphs under rocks so I think its only a matter of time before it really gets going. It will definitely be crowded though, even with the slow fishing on Friday there were probably more than 10 boats on the water and a healthy amount of wade fisherman. I was wading also and found some nice big stretches of water to myself.

Can't figure out how to get the Macro working

If you go and want to catch fish I'd stick with nymphs. Small mayfly patterns and stones, unless of course you see fish rising.
