Morning Trip

The water was too inviting this morning- had to run up and see if they were interested in a jig. Running just over one units when I got up there. Tied on a 1/8th oz sculpin jig and didn't change all morning. Hooked the first rainbow on the bank below #2- jumped- fought hard. Beautiful 17 male all colored up with a hook starting to develop on it's lower jaw.


Next drift caught a nice 18 inch rainbow above the island. Made several more drifts but didn't get much below Big Hole cause they didn't bite downstream on the first drift. Caught 6 rainbows, all decent trout. But they just weren't that interested.

Went on down to Lookout and worked the bluff bank. Caught 2 more making the morning total 8 rainbows... 7:30 - 9:15 am.

Steve Dickey said they did good drifting scuds from Lookout down this morning.

Here's some pics I took on the way up.
