Short trip to the dam 6/5


Recommended Posts

The SWPA schedule said minimum flow until noon so I went to the dam this morning. Fishing started off good with the usual midge hatch early and I caught 7 on a size 18 parachute Adams. The fog burned off at 8:30 and the caddis were just starting to hatch... and then at 9:05 the horn went off. I got to the bank and waited to see how much water was coming. It looked to be 3 or 4 generators so I left along with all the other waders. Lots of grumbling about SWPA in the parking lot. 

I got home and decided to go to Roundhouse Shoals access and take advantage of the minimum flow. Ended up catching a bunch of stocker rainbows on a Y2K/midge combo along with this nice brown.
