We met Pokymon up at the "D" in Malad, ID. Saturday morning. Was a little cooler (but still not cool enough) and a slight breeze when we got there at around 8 am. Put off setting up camp and headed straight to the water. NAUGHTA! it was terrible. I could see a few and had a couple of bumps. Fished till around 11 am then headed in to set up camp with all of us coming up empty handed.
The old man dropped a "Deptherm" down about 30' and water temp was in the low 70's...WOW!
I went back out around 6 pm and managed 3 good healthy trout on a Maroon/Black Gartside Softhackle. Awwwww, finally, the Skunk smell gone.
A storm blew through that was UGLY! about 60 mile an hour wind and swirls on the water, not to mention the White Caps.
Got up this Morning and head back out. Had a fish right out from the launch. I cruised up by the Dam with 250 grain depthcharge fly line and the Purple Nurple (the one I had caught fish on the night before) Not bad, had 6 nice trout with nothing under 20".
Then headed to the trees at the other end for a little deep nymphing. Threw on a 20' leader (straight 6lb P-Line flouro), put my slip indicator at about 19' and a Zebra Chironomid on the bottom with a Green Chironomid at about 17'. Lowered the line and BAMB! I probably caught 20 in 2 hrs. They were hitting before the line got all the way down....NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
My camera was still sitting on the coffee table at home so no pixs on this one. And the old man is still a little nervous to take his new camera out on the tube/toon
Some things are better left alone, Even though, some feel they know better.
