Love going out in the morning and having the river to myself. Water level was definately higher than when we were out Monday PM. There were a few midges hatching and some very sparse BWO. I was using a double nymph rig with chartreuse copper john (1fish caught) and bead head G.R. Hares ear (5 fish caught). Mostly small fish in the 8 inch range and a couple of 10-12 inchers. I fished from around 6am-9am. Water is fast and tea colored,but fairly clear. Hard to get and keep nymphs down. That being said probably a third of the fish caught were on the swing at the end of the drift.

Thanks Flyrodn, it's one of the reasons I post to the forum as well, since I can't view conditions in town. On a side note, I'd love to know of some your favorite carp flies for the ponds in the Natural Areas around here. Feel free to PM me.
