Fishing was very good. Best flies were, pats rubber legs, hares ear, barrs emerger. Water levels were up but clarity was very good. BWO's were coming off mid day. Fishing slowed in the pm as the skies opened up and conditions became bright and clear. Landed many fish up to 18" even a nice brookie. ~ Blue Parish -- May 24th, 2016

Three of us were fishing this property and had a great day. We caught multiple rainbows and browns mainly on a tan san juan worm (tan juan worm). We also caught fish on prince nymphs, black stone fly, and Reese's fusion nymph. We stayed near the southern border of the property and the fish were staying in the deep slow moving waters. It was important to make sure that you got your flies down deep to where the fish were. ~ Pete -- May 6th, 2016

Beautiful day, although the fishing was a bit disappointing. We only caught fish in two pools upstream of the bridge. Where the other fish were, we do not know. Red was the color of the day as we landed fish on red San Juan worms and red copper Johns. One was caught on a flashback Pheasant Tail. However, the fish landed were 14" and more. There was no surface activity ~ Allen Adinoff -- August 24th, 2015

August 10, 2015 – The weather was a bit overcast as we rigged up and made our way to the bottom of the lease, around 9am. We didn’t see much in the way of hatches, and the water was a bit off-color (tea stained) – we suspected that there may have been some rain the evening before. My buddy started with a PMD while I rigged up a stimmy with a red 2 bit hooker. I hooked a nice 14” rainbow on my second drift through a pool, and was content to stick with that, if it hadn’t been for my buddy, who, having no luck with the PMD, switched over to a tan hopper pattern. This proved to be the ticket we would use throughout the day. I also switched over and had success, primarily with rainbows, although there were a few browns lurking along the banks. The best strategy was sticking with deeper runs and pools and drifting the hopper right down the fairway. We both were in to double digits with landed fish, before noon. We stopped for a quick bite then proceeded above the bridge for the afternoon. Hoppers were still the ticket, with several rainbows in the 18-20” range being caught throughout the day. I switched over to a streamer (which I had tried several times in the morning with no success), and found that there were willing chasers in the deeper pools. Again, we were both into double digits when the late afternoon thunder and rain shower helped us decide to call it a day, around 4:30pm. All in all, one of the better days on any section of Tarryall.

The bright sun, cloudless sky, and heat are our excuse. Two of us cast all day, trying every fly. We were not skunked but you could smell it from there on that day. Not the fault of the creek. It was beautiful and clear, maybe too clear. I think the trout thought we were Ospreys and stayed as far away from us as possible. My wishes for better luck are extended to the next fly fisherman. ~ Gene -- July 25th, 2015
