Default Fished the Obey Today

My son-in-law and I fishied the Obey today and caught 4 rainbow. They were not large trout, all in the range of 10" ----but we lost two trout that borke off and we both know they were larger than 10". We did not know the water temp. but our feet was just about num after 20 minutes or so. We were using black and silver midges number 18 size with a 6X tippet--using an indicator about 14" from the midge. The water was slow flow but no more than knee deep in most places--we fished at the moody point access. There was one other fisherman wading but we did'nt see him catching anything. If you can stand the cold water you can catch trout. Really a beautiful place to fish. Good Luck.
