Fishing Tackle: Fly Fishing

Fish Caught: Brown Trout

Brown Trout Caught: 2

Comments: River was stained, with about 1’ visibility. Flow was 128.4, stage was at 1.18’. Water temp was at 50°F. Caught 2 browns, one 14”, and one 16” tight lining a tandem rig. Point fly was a stonefly nymph, which caught the 14” brown, and the 16” took the tag fly which was a Caddis nymph. Both browns were caught during my first 20 minutes in the water. Then, it was as if someone flipped the switch to off, no activity until about an hour later, at which time I caught a 14-1/2” Rainbow. Total time on the water was 2 hours, 15 minutes. All trout caught were C&R’d.
