Comments: I seemed to have the creek to myself Saturday night. Finished day for 90 mins on Apple. Water was a bit colored with some snow or ground melt. Tough to see into holes with sunlight getting low. I managed 2 in and a couple more lost. Bugs coming out of water seemed to be BWOs size 24 - 22. I saw a handful of trout sip off surface. One even tried to intercept my yarn indicator in the air.

I was using a black stone dry with zebra nymph dropper. At first my zebra had a peacock herl thorax. They didn't want that. Once I switched to BH zebra with no collar. 4 fish on in last 20 mins. The 2 I landed were fat, happy 14 and 15 inchers. That was fun!
