Title: Latest Santa Ynez stocking
Post by Forum Admin on Feb 20th, 2006, 3:47pm

Looks like the Santa Ynez river is scheduled for stocking this week.

Anybody interested in going up there this week? Maybe thrursday if stocked by then?

The river was stocked last week. They skipped one week. maybe so they would stock before the long weekend. Plenty of fish still there sun eve when I left. I went sat and sun. I had never seen a road kill trout until this past weekend. I spotted a squished fish at the fifth crossing. All my fish were caught on a very small light flashy nymph suspended about a foot and a half below a # 18 yellow stimulator. They were ready and willing. Some large to about 13 inches.

If you do make it out today and have any luck, please post. I may just have to play hookie from work on Wednesday and give it a shot.

Fishstick, why would I need luck? Just going up to catch some fish, not going to stop at the Chumash casino.  :)

Didn't make it up there today and it looks as if I'm busy tomorrow; maybe thursday.

Wednesday is out for me as well. Thursday perhaps. If you see a guy on the river who is beating the water to a froth with his rod, that would be me.

Jean,

Loved your newsletter article. Great to hear that you fished the Santa Ynez, had success and met fellow club members on the river! What section of the river did you fish and what were you using? I'm thinking of going up there this weekend. Maybe I'll see you on the water!?

I never got out last week and won't have time this week either darn it! Looks like we're getting another too.
