Got to the water at 7:00 am both days.Fished from the rebar down to the point.I had a wooley tied on so I tried it,and had my best day so far with a fly rod.I ended up with 28 Sat and left at noon.Seemed like the harder the wind blew the better they hit.Had alot get off because of poor hook sets.Olive was the best color,but my bigger fish came on black.Had a monster on right before I left and let him break me off.

Today was different had to work much harder,ended up with 21 total,but I fished till 3:30 today,there were several hours today with no fish. Some of the Rainbows had brilliant colors and were fat as pigs.I just can't seem to capture the true colors of these fish with a camera.

I always try and look for OAF hats when I'm fishing,well I finally seen one today.Dano it was really great to meet you,hope we can talk and fish again some time.

Its always great to put faces to names. Thanks for introducing yourself and I wish we would have had more time to chat. We'll meet up there someday and see if we can get us some biggens.

I couldn't buy a strike for the first hour or so today. I primarily fished just upstream of the rebar. I couldn't get them to take the blue tung midge or a black zebra. Water was low, so I was fishing it below an indicator about 18 to 20 inches. Trout crack didn't produce either. I finally went to a sz 18 harvester midge and got my first fish and the biggest for me of the day, a fairly healthy looking almost 19 inch brown. I picked up a few more stockers on the harvester midge and a few on olive soft hackles. I have to agree with tightlines, use the wind and chop to your advantage especially fishing midges in the slower runs. I also spotted several nice fish of the 24 to 28 inch class cruising upstream making large wakes in the short water. They certainly didn't want anything I offered them. I would suggest if you see this activity while fishing soon, you might try throwing some of that nighttime stuff like a pine squirrel sculpin or wooley bugger. They just might like a big meal.

Dano - silly question, do you have a pic of the harvester midge, or a pattern description?

Caddis, not silly at all. I Thought I had a picture but couldn't find one. I will post one tomorrow though. Its simply a zebra midge, tied with a black bead, Danville brown thread 8/0 and fine black wire. I use a scud hook.
