TRIP SUMMARY

Trico hatch occuring early in the mornings and spinner fall slurps went on until approximately 11am. Catching on dries and sub surface trico patterns. Heard grasshoppers buzzing around the banks all day. Once the trico hatch mellowed out we switched over to the Hopper dropper rigs and did ok on the first day and better on the last two days.

Got more hits on the patts than expected and still had a handful take the pheasant tail. The fish were more into the smaller sized chubbies than the bigger ones, even though the hoppers seen on the banks were larger in size. On the last two days, the water temps held low and with the cloud cover, the mid day-afternoons were filled with streamer eats! Full and intermediate sink lines with short leaders and articulated flies for those, see bugs section for types and colors.
