View Full Version : 3500+ft. Elevation, Snow, Brookies and a "Great Day" with my oldest son

Woke Tyler up later than usual because I knew it would be warmer later in the after noon. With temps in the 40's at 9:30 as we got out of the car, Couldn't wait to hear the water after a 2 mile hike in.


Snow on the Mountains!! Couldn't help but think of a SnowBird while driving and my daughter who returns home from Univ. of Alaska this week with temps at school -20!!!


Brought 8 to hand all on a dry. None would touch a double or dropper nymph!!



Water temps at the low 40 degree mark with excellent flow. Expected the snow run off along with all the leaves in the water to neutralize the P.H. levels and turn the bite off.



Saw no sign of reds. Sorry about this pic. In a hurry to release!!




What a day!! It all started because I felt something might be wrong with my computer because of no posts on the forum for 2 days!? Maybe should pull the plug on this electronic thing and get back out there!!!

Thank You Tyler.

Great post. I to missed the post of people on the board this weekend. It's only been a week since I camped in the smokies for three days and you got me missing it already. Looks like you had a great day.
