The mayflies where gone so it was time to switch to another fishery.
I decided it was about time to chase chub with big foam hoppers.
I was surprised at the higher level of water in the stream.
Normally at this time of year the stones of the fish ladders are visible.
The banks where finally mowed but spotting the fish in the higher water was difficult, could not find the big fish.
I ended up blind casting upstream dropping the hopper with a splash on the water.
Fishing for chub in summertime was not an early morning outing.
Consequently I ended up late for lunch at the pub avoiding the crowds
and getting prompt service.
