p1230950 Our trophy fishery Vltava 24 is open whole year around, we go there always on the January 1st to catch and release first fish. Also this year was winter not so cold and I visited this water few times, below are few pictures from winter and early spring fishing. In winter was successful method nymphing, but after we stocked first fresh fish in March, I used mainly streamers. Pink or yellow one on the dropper and black one on the point. Leader HC 0,22. The new rainbows had been probably hybridised with barbel as they were fighting strongly and staying at the bottom and the were not jumping :-) I was tired after few fish like after marathon :-)

p1230840 We had also one sad situation, I was going to check whether is already spawning nase under the upper weir and found out, that there was no water flowing over the weir because of a mistake of the regulation of the power-plant and there was about 1000 fish flipping about in the empty riverbed, I rescued over 850 fish but about 300 died. Owner of the power plant promised to repair it and also to pay restocking of this interesting riverine fish. Hope it will never happen again.
