Hit the creek monday morning for a few hours. The water Is in excellent condition and gin clear. Saw lots of bugs coming off just not in large quantities yet. Saw little black caddis and tan caddis, saw big Brown May flies and tons of midges. Small fish were keying in on the midges laying eggs and caddis bouncing of the surface of ruffles. Most of my fish came on bigger in olive and twenty incher stonefly like pattern I tie. Had one on Frenchie as well. The big fish were right on the bottom in deep pools with heavier current and gravel bottom. Used Czech style nymphing in these areas and had good results. In the long stream flats and slow runs a long distance longleader cast was a must and had good results. I had to big trout take coming downstream and run right at me though and spit the fly in my lap. Shorter rod to blame here. Took my seven foot three weight this time. All in all good outing in the middle section of crane creek.
