Nice report. Thanks for posting

Glad you found better water. I had a conversation with Stana Claus at a TU meeting several months back where he was describing the headwater stream in your last post. His opinion didn't seem to be very favorable either, and I would suspect it was two trips in one for him (First and last)

And while my report from today was the exception, I have been catching way too many smaller fish this year also. I've had many days where bigger fish could just not be had. I believe the size bump we got from the drought years are gone, and I know of 3 other Smies fisherman that seem to agree that the fish are smaller this year (Brookie streams not Browns in LR)
