As most of us already know Bear Creek is closed to angling due to water levels and temperature, so my good friend and I had a new destination in mind. Seeing as Clear Creek was just about the same and distance as BC and flows were much higher, it is the best close to home choice. We were on the river at 10:00 am and the clouds had already began to move in on us, not long after the rain began to come down, hard. Eventually it slowed down but the fishing picked up. We began to notice a lot of fish rising right along side the banks, common sense told us to tie on some dries immediately. I tied on a size 14 green drake while my buddy threw on a size 20 adams, I found on of several larger pools, still holding faster moving water, floated my fly right over it, and on the second drift my fly was sucked down so fast I hardly noticed, settling the hook once I relized what had happened, my drag began to peel, after a good fight I managed to land my oh so aggressive 14" brown, right In front of the rafters going by. A good Day all in all, I do think it is unfortunate about Bear Creek, but now I think Im going to get over real soon.
