Fishing Tackle: Fly Fishing

Fish Caught: Rainbow Trout

Rainbow Trout Caught: 4

Comments: Fished from 8:30 to 12:30. Water was very clear with 3-ft visibility; trout in deep pools. At first I tried all the go to flies for newly stocked rainbow trout, egg patterns, mop flies and other bright and gaudy flies. Trout would approach then turn away. I switched to some small mayfly/midge patterns and caught 2 on a rainbow warrior. I saw a caddisfly fly off the water and switched to a #16 elk hair caddis and bingo caught two high flying bows. That made my day. Saw three other fishers and 11 cars in the parking lot.
