Rain puts Trout off the Rise

Tuesday and Wednesday I stopped by the North Branch Raritan on my bike rides and trout rose incessantly. This evening, I fly fished with Oliver and saw two rises. Rain had begun as the tropical storm approaches, early in the season now for tropical storms. (Unfortunately, with south seas warmed beyond prior average temperatures, we're likely going to experience tropical storms and hurricanes more often and more powerful.)

The dry fly fishing has been best after calm, mostly sunny days. I viewed the stretch earlier than sunset yesterday.

Oliver caught a wild brown and a rainbow in fast water not much more than two feet deep. The nymph weighted with tungsten putty allowed high-sticking the rod to control drift under the tip.
