Cracklebacks worked today 6/2

SWPA ran 1 unit this morning so I went to the dam and met my friend up there. Caught a few nice rainbows and 1 cutthroat on a ruby midge early and then around 9 there were a few caddis and small tan mayflies coming up. Tied on an elk hair caddis dry and caught a couple,  but they were not too interested in that. Next choice was the soft hackles that worked yesterday and still not many takes. I switched to a crackleback and that was what they wanted today. Caught around 20 and missed a bunch more.

Here's a couple of the better ones...

Those are some beautiful fish! How have the crowds been up there? I’ve been wanting to fish the dam but I don’t feel like combat fishing. 

It hasn't been too bad. Most folks won't fish the dam if is not minimum flow. It does limit access but there are still a few places to fish. I think lots of fly fishers have been going to Norfork lately as they have been running minimum flow until noon every day for the last few weeks. I think all this will change soon as the lake is now 7 feet from the top of flood pool. That is 25 feet above power pool.

We did have minimum flow on the White this morning for the first time in weeks. Fishing was good and I lucked out and got this pretty 20" cuttie on an elk hair dry fly along with some nice rainbows.
