Report at a Glance

General RegionRiver Road
Specific LocationRR Trestle to 1/2 mile downstream
Time of Day10:30 - 3:30
Fish CaughtTen midgets 8" - 10", two about 12", two pretty wild fish > 7". two chubs
Conditions & HatchesWater clear and seemingly quite warm. Thermometer broken but water felt to be mid 60's - ya think that is possible? Good flow and nice nymphing depth. Hardly any Hendrikson's - saw 1/2 a dozen early then none for rest of day. Some Grannoms and also tan caddis. Once in awhile there would be a rise but for the amount of sun and caddis there was very little surface action.

Two larger fish on top, all others on mymphs, either a #14 BH PT or a #16 olive caddis with a gray ostrich herl thorax and lemon woodduck downwing.

It's a shame such pretty water and so few mayflies and rising fish.
