Property Log Book Comments

Two of us fished in almost perfect weather conditions with the exception of a couple of passing thunder storms. Not too much sun and the flow reported at 286 with gin-clear water. Fish were tough to come by although we eventually happened on to a grey colored pmd which caught most of the fish. A couple of really healthy browns stretched the tape over 16" but most were between 10" and 13". Two rouge rainbows around 13" but the rest browns. One rod caught about twenty while the other (me) caught maybe a dozen. ~ Mountain Moose -- September 8th, 2014


The Ark near A-6 was high and muddy so I went to the upper river at noon. It was high at almost 600 cfs but clear to a depth of about 18 inches. I caught eight trout 10 to 16 inches long, 2 rainbows and the rest browns. They took green caddis larvae and golden stone nymphs dead-drifted in 2 to 4 feet of water. A few adult caddis were around but no fish were rising. No hits on streamers. ~ John -- April 22nd, 2014


Beautiful day. Small catch of 8 total. Little activity after 10:30 a.m. SJ worm, PMX foam-tan, Zebra. Tried several others but without luck. Another fly fisher in the lower section did much better. ~ Gene -- October 10th, 2013


Two of us fished the lower section below the swinging bridge. Beautiful sunny and hot day. Another fly-fisher on the section above the bridge. The two of us landed about 9 with a large RB included. Lot's of strikes and lots of misses on top water foam hopper with a Zebra midge dropper, #20. ~ Gene -- October 10th, 2013


Fished half day. Bright sun to begin with. No hatches. Caught some in the flatter water below the walk bridge on an extended body PMD. Got several browns on a black ant in the quiet water on the east side of river. Steady, but not spectacular action. ~ Jack Kruse -- September 9th, 2013
