Fished from the wire down to Tan Vat. Got in the water at 8:30AM, fished until 5PM. The river is FULL of fish of varying sizes. Got bit on my first cast (an Elk Hair Caddis fly with a caddis emerger dropper). Caught fish consistently on that combo up until 12:30PM until the bite died down quite a bit. The action was split evenly on the dry and the dropper. I even had a double on for a moment or two until the 2nd fish spit the hook. Fished that elk hair caddis most of the morning then switched to nymphs. Just down from the wire is a submerged sand bar in the middle of the channel. It forms an inverted "V" with the water flowing at the bottom of the "V" (I always forget which is upstream and which is downstream). Along the "V" the water is no more than 1' deep. In the center of the "V" it might be chest deep, or deeper. Anyway, the fish were holding in the middle of that "V" and along it's edges. I spent at least 3 hours fishing that one spot of the river. After a late lunch moved down to Tan Vat and turned right against the current (again, don't remember which is upstream or downstream). Didn't do as well right away, but found some fish in an area about 500 yards from the ramp in deep water. Picked up a few more with a John's Rubber Legs fly.
I caught 35, or more fish, and my buddy over 40. Released every fish.
General comments: The river looks much different that it did when I was here last year. Lots of big trees down. Wading is more difficult. There are a few places where the water is chest deep. Lots of sand. The bite was so good and the fish so numerous that I wonder if they have eaten all the forage in the river and are hungry. Not sure if that's possible, but this is my 3rd time there and I've never done better. My buddy, a regular on the Current, had his best day ever as well. Saw only a 3 other folks fishing on that stretch of the river the entire day.
All in all a great day. Thanks for reading.
