Gazette Article - How To Properly Handle Trout!

Quick Dream Stream Fishing Report - 6-29-14

Yesterdays trip started out by the barns. There are still a ton of suckers in the area, but the good news is that there are some trout mixed in. Unless you see fish rising to emerging tricos or adult midges, try throwing a tandem nymph rig with Barr's Emergers in either the bwo or pmd flavor behind a san juan worm. Make sure you have enough weight to drop your flies quickly. As of the writing of this report the flow is at 276 cfs.

Fish could literally be anywhere in the river. We found them in the deeper pools and we sight fished to trout in riffles. The fish in the riffles are a little more opportunistic, so focus your attention there. As the sun gets higher target the deeper pools.  If you see fish rising, a size 22-24 Barr's Visadun trico or a Griffith's Gnat in the same size should do the trick. When it gets windy in the afternoon, which we all know is the norm, consider tying on a hopper with a weighted nymph such as a tungsten bead head pheasant tail as a dropper. Cover a lot of ground and pound the bank and anywhere there's structure.

Tight lines!
