River is perfect

Finally the river is coming down and looking great. The bigger trout that have been hiding with the high water are feeding. We also caught about 5 browns. Little guys but hey they were browns... some of the bows we are catching a really nice size. Water still is up some making it hard to land those bigger fish. Gotta be patient and play them out.

A y2k with a size 14 nymph dropper has been hot. I always try a woolly first then y2k, still no action a put the nymph dropper on. A 2 nymph setup can work great on hatches. Pheasant tail, copper john, prince nymph, the fish dont seem to care. One of the new jig hooks with a tungsten bead is a great set up for the bottom nymph. The tight lining technique we use is just like euro nymphing except for I never use over 2 flies. 3 or more flies makes for a hook in the hand when netting fish.... no bueno!
