thanks casey.

i did not get to go pikin', obviously....

but i'll be heading to a nice spot today.... i drove by it yesterday and saw some FATTIES sipping little mayflies from the surface.... a bunch of rainbows... a few cutthroat and one huge brown that refused to come up for any of the bugs... he was probably waiting for me to show up with my streamer today.... hopefully they'll still be there...

there weren't much bugs in the air and the fish would only rise every 5 or 10 minutes... but they were looking up. i'd cast and i'd see them come up from below just to turn away at the last millisecond... i probably said "cmon cmon cmon DANG" a dozen times....

but not all fish turned away from my offerings... :

a little guy. maybe 10 inches:

the following fish were all over 15 inches... all came up for a size 14 elk hair caddis.... supposed to mimic spruce moths this time of year...

i know, i know... they all look the same. sort of:

Glad to see you finally got out again! I sure wish they could snuff that fire but unlikely...it's nasty in town. Quite a few years ago a fire started on Mt. Jumbo, I was fishing the mouth of the Rattlesnake and a chopper came dipping water out of Clark Fk between the Madison and Orange St. bridges!

Nice fishes! I gotta get up there!

Thanks dean. Yea, i remember that fire... i remember the ashes on my black car when i left work in the evening.


YES YOU GOTTA. it's very consistent right now. the clark fork is hit and miss and the upper bitterroot is too far of a drive for me.... so is rock creek.

blackfoot is the spot.

The colors of the first of the 15"+ fish are my favorite of the bunch. The picture of the helicopter picking up water is really awesome as well.

hello all!

i went fishing yesterday evening (11/6/11) for about 2 hours... i had both my streamer rod and my dry fly rod with me... when i got there, it was ripples galore on the surface so my obvious choice was the dry fly rod.... the hatch was very small blue wing olives. a lot of the risers were smaller trout in the 8 to 12 inch range and every once in a while, there would be a loud KERPLOOP!.... after catching a few (more like 10) small rainbows and cutthroat, i waded in deeper to get a little more distance.... the bigger risers where all on the opposite bank....

a couple scenery shots:

very slow, clear water:

i didn't know the big fish on the opposite bank were BROWNS! and i didn't even have to use my streamer rod... this one maybe 18 inches:

another brown! on a size 18 BWO!... about 16 inches:

Neat picture of the fish among the rocks. I'm thinking of tying up some BWOs for the winter, I wanna get in on this dry fly game
