Today Jim came to the shop for the on-stream portion of the two day fly fishing school that started yesterday. The water was high but Jim was up to it and while the dry fly fishing was for naught, the nymph fishing wasn’t bad. While instructing various nymphing techniques, I landed three nice rainbows. Jim missed a few fish and fought one for a bit before it performed some acrobatics and got rid of the fly. Action came on a caddis larva patterns, prince nymphs, and glo bugs. The water was off color with about two feet of visibility and cold. Flow was about 150cfs during the day, it continues to drop. I spotted a few Quill Gordons(#14) and Blue Winged Olives(#16), as well as some good waves of Early Brown Stones(#12) and black midges. Indicator rigs did not produce but bounce rigs and Czech rigs produced fish. Streamer fishing did not produce any strikes but it’s only a matter of time before they become productive.
