After a stop at LRO to redeem my Christmas gifts, I was fully prepared for an extended weekend on the streams. I fished both Elkmont and Tremont over the weekend a saw the fish gradually become more and more active each day I was out. I fished mostly mid to late afternoons, and on Monday saw the Quill Gordon hatch in full-swing and the fish responding well to almost any dry-fly pattern.

I averaged 5-6 fish each outing and one late afternoon had (I'm assuming) a big brown eat a #16 BHPT then just lay there. I pulled once thinking I was caught on a rock, then this fish rocketed down stream like nothing I'd ever witnessed. The last time I saw this fish it was in the air, and it sounded like someone slapping a boat paddle on the water when he went back in.

here's a few pictures from a great weekend

It's been awhile since I've been to the park any suggestions for this up coming weekend with the rain coming in?

The forecast looks pretty Nasty if not dangerous for Friday and Saturday. But if you're going to fish on Sunday, I'd use big heavy nymphs or streamers in deep water.
