David Lee of the Register Star followed self-proclaimed fly fishing purist John Libruk into Claverack Creek for the first day of trout fishing, Sun., Apr. 1. Lee writes that mild temperatures and a lack of storm water run-off made for ideal conditions in the creek. The fish are more likely to take surface flies when the water is clear. Libruk spotted several “rises," telltale ripples in the water when the trout take food from the surface. Lee reports Libruk caught four brown trout in quick succession. The largest of the four fish was a healthy 13 to 14 inches long. Read the full story in the Register Star.
