Went fishing with my 11 year old son. I caught 9 rainbows and lost 4 in several hours of fishing. My 11 year old was pounding the water and getting frustrated. I tried to help him of course. What burns me, however, is another fisherman came and parked himself next to the pool that my son was attempting to catch a few trout. He told my son to leave and go upstream. After I found out about it I was furious. I looked for the guy(Good thing I didn't find him!) to discuss stream etiquette.
Oh yeah, I caught all of my bows and missed the others fishing a #16 parachute Adams. I stayed away from the pools and fished the riffle areas. Every riffle that had a streak of dark water(especially under the shady bankside trees).
Water temp is high! I had 73 plus readings in several spots(noon to 2 pm).
