Had a great day on the Little Pigeon yesterday. Caught a number of average rainbows on my usual EHC/Greenie Weenie dropper rig. Used 7X tippet. Going smaller on the tippet seems to help this summer.

My buddy also did something we have been talking about for a while. He donned the mask and snorkel and did some underwater exploration. Very encouraging but disheartening at the same time. In one deep (8-10') pool he saw loads of trout, including a fat 18" rainbow suspended mid-pool. I'm glad to know they're actually in there (always question those fishing reports of multiple 20"+ trout in the park in a single day), but also frustrating as I've never caught a "big" trout in the park. Loads of average fish, but never one of the big boys. Now I've got something to work on.

Interesting idea to snorkel in the river. Glad to hear they are there and in bulk. Yeah, smaller tippet would have helped a lot last week.

Everything viewed underwater thru a scuba mask is 25% LARGER and 25%closer.....
Glad my wife missed that day of science class;):p:biggrin:hehe

That's why I have to keep telling my wife that those 7" keepers I bring home on occasion are a foot long.....

Shrinkage may be involved
