Great day of fishing. Stayed in one area the whole time. Water was cold, murky, with mild amt of flowing algae. Tough wading, a lot of sharp angled, algae covered rocks - really needed a staff to do it safely.
First off, gotta thank Angler's for setting me up on the flies. Used a #20 yellow-dot crackleback (?). Looks like a pheasant tail but a yellow dot on the case. Used it as the bottom dropper. Caught both with lead and free-float.
Nymphed for most of the day, caught most that way. Had a PMD hatch ~3:30. Lots of bugs, casted to the risers. Seemed most risers were on the other bank, hard to get to cuz of difficult wading. Got two that way. Caught a HUGE ~25" brown at the end. Was getting ready to leave and figured try for one lone riser I saw. It was a monster - took a while to get in. Striiped yards of line. Barely fit the net. Great closer for the day.
