I got out and fished the river Thursday the 14th then again Monday and Tuesday this week. I’d describe the fishing from Thursday as slower but steady. I nymphed most of the day then switched over to dry/dropper the last couple hours. A couple came up for the dry but most came on nymphs. Fly of the day was a rusty brown biot nymph.

Monday I came back and camped down at Parker. Fishing was slow. I did manage a couple small browns well upstream but remained troutless most of the day. The two browns came right off the bottom on a hare’s ear Czech. The water felt warm for trout so I figure a lot of fish have migrated upstream. Those left were sulking on bottom. I finished up my fishing at Parker with some evening streamer fishing and then again early the next morning but I quickly decided I was switching accesses for Tuesday.

Back at Baptist I went back to nymphing. Fishing was amazing all the way down to Ashley Creek and remained steady on the return trip. The fly of the day was easily a big #4 Vladi-worm. It worked great on the deep and fast holes but was way too much fly for the shallower water. For these stretches I had a jiggy pheasant tail on point. I had the biot nymph on dropper again, although a hot-spotted version this time. I went to dry dropper towards the end of the day. The biot nymph left the nymph rig and got hung off a big black klinkhammer. I had more risers than last Thursday but most still took the nymph. What fish I did catch on top came within inches of the bank and were really violent takes. This has my really itching for hopper fishing.

That just about sums up the trips. More pics and a slightly longer report at the blog.
