Afternoon Report

Met some friends up at the dam this afternoon- they promptly left to take a nap. The boys are getting old!

I stayed, walked up above #2 outlet and tied on a soft hackle and proceeded to have some fun. I had just as much fun missing takes as I did hooking up actually.

I had numerous rainbows chase my fly, their heads coming all of the way out of the water trying to slurp it up only to miss... or I missed. Had one hit so hard it snapped the line- I had no chance.

If the wind blew, I got bit on almost every cast. When it died down, I'd still get bit but it would take a few casts.

They wanted it short strips and fast. Best flies were olive or red, #16 soft hackles. 6x tippet. I crossed to get out of everyone's way and fished till about 5:30. Walked down to rebar cause there was a crowd - ended up being my buddies. They'd come back out from their nap and were fishing. They caught a few small ones but nothing much. Short vid of a big midge hatch will be posted shortly.
