Default Provo River, UT - 04/17/2015

Fished the lower Provo River today from 10:00a - 3:30p under partly sunny skies with a stiff breeze that kept switching directions on us. Fish were gobbling midge pupae when were first arrived but switched over to Baetis nymphs around 11:30 and it was all about the "olives" after that. Nice hatch from 1:00-1:30 produced terrific dry fly action on #18 Comparaduns, after that it was switching up to stay on top of what they were targeting. Landed quite a few swinging soft hackles today as well. Here are a few pic's...

When the sun did pop out it was quite lovely, but those moments were few and far between today.

A big fish that looks to have had a hard life... stretching past the 19" mark, a weird "dent" where his adipose fin should have been and remnants of a torn lip... all this did not prevent him from taking me into my backing however!

Difficult to see here, but a guide with his two hackers (clients?) moved right in on these guys working a great run... zero fishing etiquette in this crew. Guys like this give real guides a bad name.

Joe: Looks like you guys had an awesome day on the water, congrats!

I don't understand guides that have to do that.

Agreed Larry. That's why I have no problem calling these guys hackers. No self-respecting angler is going to agree with a guide to move right in and crowd others guys out of a spot.

Guide gets a big chunk of the blame, but nobody held a gun to those bozo's that went along with it... I hope they all got skunked.
