surprised caught a big goggle eye on the next cast; I mean big (about 9-10″) and just as black as they come.
6/25 – Caught 2 smaller rainbows at Kelly Ford at 6:00 AM on dries. Size 16-18 Blue Winged Olives in the fastest part of the chute. One was par marked. Didn’t measure but I’d say 8″ and maybe 9-10″.
6/26 – Caught a 15-16″ rainbow at Jacks Riffle at 5:50 AM. Lost one too.
One of the guests that left the day I arrived caught 8 Rainbows on dry flies; mostly on a version of Elk Hair Caddis (real light hair; almost white) size 16 around the mid stream rocks and sand washes, very early in the morning.
I am was humbled by this stream; although I only fished about 4 times in the week for two hours each.
(sorry for the bad pics but the light was poor and I was worried about reviving the rainbow)
