  • 25 -35 both days

    25 - 35 mile per hour winds running the past two days at the dam. Heck I think I saw a snow flurry yesterday, but it was balmy enough to wet wade today.

    Monday I started out dry dropping a single size 16 glowing caddis and picked up a few fish but felt like I was missing something so I went to two size 18 midges and began to tear it up. I switched it up to a micro streamer I call the Timex and picked up a few before recognizing numerous rising fish. I went to two tiny dries including a Griffiths Gnat. The fish wanted nothing to do with them.........floating at least. I made a concerted effort to drown them and picked up several fish swinging them in the film so I switched the top fly to a small soft hackle with a 1.5mm tungsten bead to keep the flies just below the miniscus. Most of the fish from the swing were small browns.

    Today I thought the winds would not be as bad. I was wrong. I did pick up a few fish swinging small emergers but the dry dropper and small streamer game won the day. I did well on a moonshine midge and a bruiser midge as well as an olive micro streamer with an orange bead.

    I did drop two browns in the 14 to 15 inch range which was painful. All in all it was a fun two days despite the winds...and probably caught between 25 and 35 each day.

    My sources tell me all this was done while RScott was working.

    Nice work.
    You are the midge master, which is kind of silly given how big you are.
