I finally worked a trip in today to the
Fork between all the generations at the tailrace. The schedule on the website
showed no generation from 8 AM to 1 PM. Surprise, surprise generators turned on
at disappointing a lot of
fishermen. Lots of trout could be seen at every logical place I fished,
telling me the tailrace had recently been stocked.
This stocker brown trout was one of many I brought to the net in the 2 hours I had to fish before high fast-moving water caused me to leave. When the horn sounds at this place indicating generation, you need to leave the water. Don’t wait to make that last cast. The midge was the hot fly the trout were taking during the short stay. I don’t like to fish tiny flies, but the size 20 and 22 got their attention.
