Beautiful day in the Tarryall Valley. Fished the upper section all day. Caught a few nice Bows on black buggers. Switched to dries when fish started rising. Hooked and landed a half dozen fish over 16" on size 16 ant, and #22 para. BWO. Stalked these fish, and got into position on my knees in the tall grass. If you can get a drag free drift the fish will eat. Finished the day with a 20" Rainbow that was sipping duns in a back eddy. could only get a 6" drag free drift, and that was enough. This fish jumped 4 times, and I was pleased to get him landed. River flow was great. Awesome day.

Fished this beautiful little creek with my 9 yr old son. Read some of the reports and it seemed like a good place to take a young angler. We got to the property early am with cloud cover. We fished up stream back to the parking lot, then almost all the way down to the properties lower boundary. The stream was clear and flows were good. The fishing was very slow. In fact we only caught one fish. We fished every type of attractor in the box, humpy's, stimmys, hoppers, caddis, and had a nymph rod setup with man varieties of standard mayfly nymphs and even threw a SJ worm. We took our time and stayed low as there is little cover. (i fished here for my sons benefit to have less to snag on). It's a wonderful meadow stream, we just didn't see many fish. Had a shot at a small rising fish (small olives) then the skies opened and we decided to call it a day. There was another member fishing too, perhaps he had a different experience.

Awful. Not a single trout spotted from 9-3 (with a long lunch, because, why not). Water not too warm, flows decent, but all we saw and caught were what looked like little mountain whitefish (which are pretty abundant). I've fished this property before, and the usual holes were completely empty (some of which I could validate visually). Not even browns against the banks (we tried flushing a few cutbanks....nothing there).

Beautiful day, took my adult children. Stayed on the stream at the ranch -- upstream half in the morning, downstream after lunch. There was someone not in our group fishing the pond (!!). Streamflow ideal. Son and I caught about 25 each, missed at least as many as we caught. Our other less experienced anglers each caught a few. Best action on Royal Wolfe, Parachute Adams and small nymphs -- #18 green Copper John, pheasant tail, hare's ear. Grasshoppers didn't generate much. Huge wind for about 45 minutes in the afternoon made casting impossible, but after that was lovely. Everything slowed down about 530. Beaver dams have moved around a bit since last time I was here. Most of the action was in the riffles.

Awesome property. River flowing about 60 cfs. I would say perfect. Good population of wild brown trout. The average was about 12"-13" healthy. Caught around 15 the biggest a chunky 16" Rainbow and a 17" Brown.The Rainbow was much heavierbigger than the Brown. Landed 3 Nice Rainbows 2-14" and above mentioned 16". The Rainbows were extremely fat and beautiful. Hoppers on the banks. Buggers in the holes.

My fishing buddy John and I arrived at the property around 8:30am in the morning. Beautiful blue sky and about 50 degrees. Heavy rain from the day before pushed the water to almost 300cfs. It was 150cfs just a few days earlier. Water color was perfect, 54 degrees. We decided to try large streamers in natural colors: black, brown, olive. We worked our way up to the upper end of the property in the morning and netted a half dozen large fish. Around 10am we witnessed a thick trico hatch but no fish came to the surface. Lunch brought about a lull we had been warned about. Sadly it persisted well through the middle of the afternoon. We finally had a little action later in the afternoon as a small caddis hatch came about and caught a few fish on top. This property is truly exceptional as it is pristine. The river is essentially fenced in so that no cattle can access it. Shoreline is intact with tall grass and abundant insects and frogs. Fish are not numerous but exceptionally large. Fantastic day on the river!

Arrived at 8:30 a.m. on a cloudy rainy summer day. Temp was about 55 and water temp was about 52. I expected to see fish feeding with the cloud cover, however that was not the case. The river was completely dead. I worked hard and didn't catch my first fish until around noon. It was a 12" brown on a pink san juan worm. Fished for over an hour without so much as a strike. Tried many different combinations. Finally switched to a streamer, and turned a couple of fish, so I stuck with it. I fished pretty much the entire river and quit at 5 pm. Total on the day was 9 fish, most in the 10" to 14" range. Largest fish was a 16" rainbow. Lost a few others but overall a pretty poor day for this property.

The two of us arrived at the lake around 8am. We brought two 8ft pontoon boats in our trailer. There is a nice big parking area with a table that accommodated the trailer and truck well. After a few minutes of searching around we found a little hole in the bushes we could push the boats through. As we were pushing in we saw quite a few large cruisers and lots of surface action. The surface action stopped as we floated in. I started out with a #16 yellow stimi with a olive chironomid dropper and buddy was using a #16 olive elk caddis with the same dropper. We both hooked some nice 16 & 18 inchers right away. Then a little later one more each and that was it. So, change up time. I put on a blue #10 damsel and buddy a #14 olive mini leach - one more each....then nothing. Change up time. They were rising again so I went to a #20 BWO parachute and buddy a #22 BWO emerger 3 or 4 each and then nothing. It went like that the whole day. Caught one or two on each fly in the box. The denials started to get humorous. Fish would come and look and then their buddies would come look and turn away. "does that look real to you Phil ? I don't think so Hank...I'm hungry but I aint that hungry.." To many denials to count. All in all we caught about 10-12 quality fish each, but we sure had to work for em ! It was fun and a good way to spend a Sunday....we both left with big smiles.

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.

We had a great day fishing A-8. The weather was perfect and the fish cooperated. Caught a few 12" rainbows on emergers in the deep water. As the day went on numerous fish were rising and eager to take dry flies with an emerger dropper. Caught a few over 16" which is great for this little stream. The river was crystal clear and starting to get warm when we left in the afternoon. All in all a great day, we'll be back.
