I told my wife on Sunday night that it looked like it was going to be windy later in the week, and if she would like to run up to Fish Lake on Monday. She said that when we passed through Cle Elem recently I told here it was about the right time to fish the Teanaway River. She reminded me that there is a very short window when the fishing is just right, and I had better do that. She was right. I drove up on Monday morning and found conditions very good for wading. I tried a Stone Fly with a Prince Nymph dropper, and only got one fish to hit it. I stopped at one of my favorite holes and changed my set up. I tied on a Stimulator with a Copper John dropper. I cast this across the current and let it be pulled under. WHAM. A fish hit my fly and ran upstream and then downstream and when I eased it into the shallows and saw it was a 15-inch cutthroat. It was fat, with beautiful red slashes on its throat. I slipped the hook out and watched it scoot away. That fish made my day!
