I fished the Bald about three weeks ago (labor day weekend). We had some rain a few days before so the water levels were better than I would think they are now. I fished the area from the bridge next to BR Falls trail up past Holly Flats. I have fished that area at least 4-5x a year for the past 15 years, and it was the best fishing I have had in that time. Did have a problem like a previous poster with those chubs or shiners(whatever they are). I had a strange thing happen that I had never experienced before: My first time on the water I had tied a thunderhead on & started throwing my line out. As I was working my line out I felt a little disturbance on my backcast. I started cussing thinking I was already hung in a tree then looked back to see a dragonfly trying to take my fly away for dinner. It was pretty cool & also gave me a good feeling that I was throwing the right fly for the conditions. Anyway sorry for the diversion & I hope you have a great trip.
