Default Re: Headed for LMF for the week.

We really knocked them out today. We caught close to 60 fishing. We started on Spillway Creek at the dam and worked our way down. The upper pool, in sight of the dam, we caught 20 small rainbows, 6-10", on brown soft hackles and BWO emergers. The next 2 pools we had a lot of hits but caught nothing. The fourth pool we changed to BWO dries and BWO emerger. We caught about a dozen rainbows all about 12". Fifth was full of browns. I've never landed a brown on Spillway. But today I caught 6 of them all 12-14" on march brown dries. We finished up the day in the evening hole. March browns, BWO and a few Caddis hatching. Light hatch but the trout were taking dry flies pretty good.

Best fishing Lauri and I have had in 3 years. Spillway Creek has alot of pools holding lots of fish. I like the changes and the new pools. Small flies 18 are what's working now.
