View Full Version : Southern Utah

I spent the past week in Las Vegas, and had one free day to fish. Drove up to Southern Utah, to Beaver, Utah in the Fish Lake National Forest. A road runs along the stream all the way up to this this cool high meadow at 8800' elevation. I was surprised not to see any elk. I didn't fish that high up , although I'd been recommended to try a small creek up there. Used a 2-wt and started with a #16 Elk Hair Caddis. Also used a Stimmie/dropper a bit, caught everything on the dropper, #16 pheasant tail. All in all, caught 8-10 fish, browns and 'bows, no cutts. These were all in the 9-10" range. Had one on briefly that seemed larger, maybe 12". Took a water temp, 45 degrees at what I'd guess was about 8000' elevation, was surprised the fish were so active at that temp.

Photos didn't work, but am looking forward to them when you can get them posted.

If you use the " webaddress format it will work."

Here is the first one from the string:

Yep, that's one of my photos. Don't know what you did, or what I need to do to fix the others.

I may have figured it out. Failed to re-size to 75%, sorry. I've edited my orignal post to show the shots Jeffnless didn't fix for me. Thanks for the help.
