Got out this afternoon for a few hours. Wind out of the south about 15, party cloudy. Wanted to try scuds against the bluff bank below Lookout. Started across from the tennis courts. Not one bite for the first hour using a brown “mink” scud. Switched to a gray “peppy” scud and picked one up immediately. Using a #12 3769 hook, weighted under a float 30 inches. Dragging it from the bank out. It swallowed the scud so lost it. Next rainbow (video) took another peppy scud, this time it was tied on a 200r #14 hook, wire segmented. Lost that scud too.

Didn’t pick another one up for a while using an olive “perfect scud”. Switched to a tan perfect scud and start catching again. Got to the Narrows flat and backed off the bank and started fishing the flat. Good chop on the water. Small rainbows took the scud pretty good. Fished on down through the narrows and caught a few more.

No midge action at all. Did strip a crackleback – nothing.
