Greg: Were you driving a suburban and parked at the swimming pool parking lot? If so I was parked next to you in the black 4 door Ford pickup. We talked for a short while.

No I don't think that was me. I drive an older Dodge Intrepid. And I parked up at the other end by the bathrooms up at the spring.

How was you day of fishing?

Forgot the fishing report= fished zone 3 and caught around 7 fish with BH Zebras 5 of those were caught on the back side of the same rock...go figure. :huh1: One advantage to zone 3 = no people except one guy ahead of me and that was it for the 3+ hours there. Usually have better fishing in zone 3 but not today.

Went up to fish down from stone arch bridge in the riffles but it would have taken a shoe horn to get another person in that area. :omg: Really do like that area, lots of fish usually holding in the rocks.

Last went to the big water above the dam and stripped a Crackleback, and caught 3 and missed one strike then nothing :crywithno:

Greg-

I'll throw my 2 cents into the report.

I started up by Gauge house, as I always do, must be a habit. Started getting all of my stuff together and RRRRRRRRR, no vest. I brought everything except my vest and all of my secret weapons that I tied the other day. I dug around in my tote box and found some stuff to try.

I started with a Crackleback just dead drifting then strip at the end of the swing, had 1 and that was it. Headed up to Larry's to find some scuds and zebra midges, he only had a couple. Tried them down under the arch bridge and in the short water. Caught a couple on a gray scud sight fishing. Just like you said Snow Fly it was wall to wall down stream. Went down across from the swimming pool but the wind was howling through there with no success.

Hit the hole just above the stone arch bridge with a green zonker and started catching a few.

Back up at the gauge house I hooked a pig behind a rock on the far bank with a scud. Took my set up so I switched back to a green squirrel zonker that I tie and viola, they tore it up. Only had 2 with me and lost both of them to big fish. I think my tippet is old cause I broke off alot.

Not too bad of a day considering.

Snow fly - I've never fished zone 3. I'll have to give it a shot next time down. That's the bait fishing zone during the catch and keep season isn't it? There's some interesting water there if I remember right.

Brittsnbirds I had to laugh at your post about forgetting your vest - not at you - but at myself because I did the same thing a couple of years ago on a trip to Bennett. Fortunately I had a few flies stuck in my hat and did OK until I lost all my tippet.

Either of you ever fish dries at Bennett? I really had a lot of fun fishing them Sunday.

Greg:

Yes I have used dries at Bennett with success. Crackelbacks fish good as a dry, Elk Hair Caddis, PMD, Trico and Griffith's Gnat.

I to have left my vest at home. I was an hour away from home going to the Current and it hit me hard "NO VEST" :noway: I turned around and went home and then headed back to meet up with a friend. The 3 hr drive turned into 5 hrs. :omg:

My friend thought it was funny until we went on another trip to the Current we started to rig up after the waders were on and guess what? He didn't bring his Rod............I tried to feel sorry for him between laughs. :=D:

A #26 dry fly? Wow!! I've only tied and used flies down to #22. And I could hardly see those. Generally #20 is about as small as I can go both dry flies and nymphs.
