John took Connie and myself above the Hollywood hole to close to the dam. There was a small hatch of PMDs, BWOs, and midges and there were a few fish rising just above the bridge. I focused on casting to only rising fish. I caught one 15” and one 12” brown on a #16 or #18 PMD CDC compara dun, missing 2 or 3 other rises. We moved down to the Pigeon hole and John spotted a couple larger fish sipping in the far back eddy. I walked upstream and waded downstream with the current at the head of the pool and made downstream casts to the sippers with a #18 rusty clear wing spinner. I had one rise from the big fish but missed the hookset. That was the only rise. Neither Connie nor Jim had any action, and there were no other risers.

Around 8pm we moved up to the Clouser hole and while Connie and John fished the flats at the bottom of the run, I walked upstream to Zak’s hole and caught 2 15” browns on the #18 rust clear wing spinner. I missed a rise or two, and had one larger fish on for several minutes before losing him to moss. I moved upstream to right below the big rock and made several casts to a fish rising where the main current meets the still water behind the rock. On perhaps the 5th good-drift cast to him he rose. He ended up being 21 ¼” long. Beautiful fish.
