Property Log Book Comments

Two of us fished this property - me for the first time and my partner for the second in 20 years. Fishes very similar to A 14 both in approach and methodology. Flow was absolutely perfect. Great, calm morning weather was replaced with gusty, windy scattered rain showers in the afternoon. Occasional bug hatches over the course of the day with the favorite appearing to be big PMD's around noon. We each caught around 30 browns most in the 7' to 9" range although we each caught a number of fish between 14" and 16" after lunch. All were very healthy. Dry / dropper rig of choice seemed to be that big PMD with a green copper john dropper. Caught fish equally between the two. We had a few other sporadic takes but the two mentioned above caught the bulk of the fish. ~ Mountain Moose -- August 18th, 2014

Two of us fished this property from about 9:30 AM until 2:30 PM. Nice and open, small creek but very few willows to get snagged on. Only issue was the highland cattle wallowing in the creek and muddying it up. Was much better once we chased them downstream. Started slow with takes on midges and small copper johns then picked up after lunch. Used yellow stimis on top and copper copper johns below. Later in afternoon it really got going, getting strikes on every other cast. Plenty of fish here but largest to net was 11 inches. Browns and a few brookies. Fun stretch if you get past the cattle. ~ mwooster -- October 9th, 2013

Started fishing about 9:30 with cloudy skies and temps in the mid 40s. The weather deteriorated through the day with high winds and temps dropping into the 30s. We caught 4 browns ranging in the 5-7 inch range and hooked one 20+ fish hiding under the bank. We tried dry dropper rigs with most of the hits on the dropper (BH prince nymph). ~ Chris Wilper -- May 19th, 2013
