Phil,thanks for setting us up with Tracy F? to guide my wife and I on Saturday. She also looks great in the orange OAF hat I bought for her to wear. Fortunately, the weather cooperated and only sprinkled on us a couple of times at the start of our afternoon trip and we even had some sun. This was the first trout fishing experience for my wife, and I think it may be hard to top. Tracy took us up to the dam and we mainly drifted back to Fall Creek before heading back up. Based on the recent fishing reports I drifted a white jig and had quite a bit of success catching nice rainbows and two or three nice browns. Tracy had my using a drift rig with an egg pattern and a red blood midge that produced well also. The best tactic was to drift rig a floating rapala or husky jerk. I caught several browns and nice rainbows with this set-up. However, the highlight of the day was a huge 21 inch very fat brown my wife caught with this set-up. We took several pictures with the digital camera to record the moment, then released him. However, as she was waiting to take a picture of a nice brown I was reeling in, she got a huge hit and stood up to set the hook. Unfortunately, she also had the camera in her lap and the next thing we heard was a big splash followed by an image of the cameral slowly sinking into the river. I guess, we'll just have to come back to get more pictures. Let me know if anyone catches a silver Kodak digital camera! Overall, I think we caught 24 trout from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. with three to four browns going about 18" and the 21" brown my wife caught in addition to some very colorful and fat rainbows. To cap off the trip as we were getting ready head back in, we saw about 12 turkeys fly into the trees above us to roost for the night.

Brian,

Good idea about the card, hopefully someone finds it. I remember when I was a kid, I was down for a trip where they cut the water off. I found 4-5 rods and reels and a bunch of lures, I thought I was in heaven. Reels were shot and full of sand, I remember it really made a mess on the kitchen table as I tried to clean them up. Rods were fine.
