I started nymphing in the riffles and had several fish on nymphing with but landed only 2. I was trying a new setup with the woolly bugger on bottom, then 1’ up a 4” tag of line to the PT. It seemed to work a little worse that normal. The wind was still disturbing the surface, but I could hear fish rising behind the big rock island I fish from. I walked back around to it and sure enough, there were 5-6 fish rising in the backwater. I caught one and scared the others, then walked downstream to Zak’s rock and caught one quickly. I couldn’t see others rising anymore, so I walked back up to the rock island and caught 1 and had a few on. I then went down to the halfway rocks and caught a couple and had a few others on. The fish were rising like mad even though it was breezy until the time I left.
