Default Fishing/Snorkeling Little Pigeon 8/3

Had a great day on the Little Pigeon yesterday. Caught a number of average rainbows on my usual EHC/Greenie Weenie dropper rig. Used 7X tippet. Going smaller on the tippet seems to help this summer.

My buddy also did something we have been talking about for a while. He donned the mask and snorkel and did some underwater exploration. Very encouraging but disheartening at the same time. In one deep (8-10') pool he saw loads of trout, including a fat 18" rainbow suspended mid-pool. I'm glad to know they're actually in there (always question those fishing reports of multiple 20"+ trout in the park in a single day), but also frustrating as I've never caught a "big" trout in the park. Loads of average fish, but never one of the big boys. Now I've got something to work on.
