Happy 4th of July everybody! My daughter and I hit the Provo River this afternoon hoping for PMD's or Green Drakes and found both! Steady action all afternoon on #16 PMD Comparaduns and #12 Green Drake Comparaduns. Fish ranged from 10-17 inches, all wild browns, and all full of fight!
First fish of the day... 15" of pure golden brown!
This was my daughter's first experience fishing a mayfly hatch, and needless to say... she's hooked!
- Western Green Drake... this one was a cripple that we scooped off the surface.
My best fish of the afternoon
Look at that mug!
The Green Drakes were sporadic and fleeting, and it wasn't long before the PMD's were coming on again... enabling us to switch up and pick off a few more before heading back to the Valley. FISH ON!
Perfect end to a perfect day!
