A few weeks ago Pete Caron and I had arguably the best ever on our homewaters, the Kettle River. It was nice to see so many healthy fish after a summer of illegal angling and quite a mysterious dead fish finds. We'd fish this stretch numerous times before but always walking on the bank upstream trying to spot fish and fish to them. This time we walked in from upstream and fished blindly downstream, fly first and the day was incredible. Fish were every where they should have been and healthy after a summer of feeding. The river showed just enough to restore my faith that it hasn't completely died yet.
