Sneaking in a little bit of hopper action today

Looks like you had some success. Congrats! good looking flies (at least the parts sticking out of those hungry mouths). I have some hoppers that @BilletHead tied for me, but I can't get the time to head on a three to four hour trek to catch some brookies with them :unsure:.

Walked the upper access today as i was in a  time crunch. Low and clear.  Broke off two big fish using 2lb flouro due to slow clear and spooky. Big hopper smacked in the riffles and under tree branches was the most fun.

Almost  forgot.. saw my first pickerel as well!

That's awesome. If you see one or more again, try a white woolly bugger or small minnow streamer. If you don't have an issue fly fishing a bait with a small spinner, a silver blade and white body should work for those pickerel. I caught those Crane creek pickerel while using a 1/16 oz silver and white roostertail.

Good Luck! If you can, get a good photo of the entire body once you catch one.
