Default Re: Yampa tailwater

Size 20 and 22 thread body midges with brass wire. No weight used as the water was very low and clear (40cfs). I started out with an indicator (1/4" foam ball) and caught two of my fish, then took it off and caught one more.
My feeling is they had other things on their mind than feeding!
We both saw good size (11-14") Brookies also! I've never seen brookies in there before although I did catch an 11" one down below in the wildlife area last fall.
