TRIP SUMMARY

Decent day on the Ark. Water is low and clear making fish pretty spooky. However if you can find some deeper water and get a good drift you’ll find success. We stuck with dry dropper rigs for the day. A size 14 hopper I tie with a size 18 sparkle pupa and a size 20 zebra midge was the most productive set up. We only got one eat on the hopper today and saw minimal hoppers on the bank. The zebra midge was our most productive fly connecting on about 10 decent browns. Stealth, midges, 6x and a good drift are the recipe for success right now.
