Water pouring out of Ruedi (flows 357 cfs)
We did not see very many toads in the flats, we didn't see that many fish in the flats period. I'm sure the fish were there, but the murky water was hard to spot fish in.
This one is more white (dead)
This mysis was almost an 1.5'' long
Gluttonous Brown. The black eyes are a prominent feature of the shrimp
Guess what fly he took
All in all it was a fun day. We didn't see any monsters but had our chances with a few 6-8 pounders. It was amazing to see fish gorging on the shrimp, and so we tried all the mysis patterns we had, and were able to get a good idea what patterns fish pick when there is an abundance of shrimp in the water.
And what was even cooler, was the the mysis pattern I have been tying recently out-fished all the other patterns, including Craven's (always effective on the pan) and Sand's Epoxy. I will post that pattern when I get a chance.
