Since the trip was last minute, stopped by the Beaver Bend Fly Shop for some tips and to pick up suggested fishing flies and other tackle. Good information about fishing the Blue and Red Zones to include special regulations like the Name and License Number Tag for your stringer.
Interesting place with a number of little, wild Rainbow Trout caught and released, a Stocker Rainbow Trout caught and kept, and then a Bruiser Rainbow Trout hooked but lost while attempting to land it. Also, caught and released a Brown Trout (first one ever!).
Did see others catching some nice fish, and then watched several rises where the little, wild Rainbow Trout were actively feeding on something rising to the surface. Took the aquarium net out and dipped it in the river; guess... tiny "somethings" that looked smaller than a size 26... tried several midge patterns and had several takes using a size 26 Trico just could not set the hook in time.
Oh well, still lotta fun going to a new place!
