    Default backpacking/fishing

    Anyone interested in going backpacking and fishing Friday and or Saturday night in the park? I havn't decided on a campsite for sure but #18 is a nice campsite and easy to get to.

    I stayed at #18 last night. Caught a few small rainbows on nymphs. There was no dry fly action over that way yesterday. Looked like a few quill gordon's about an hour before dark. There is zero fire wood over there.

    I started fishing in the middle of #18, about 150 yards downstream of the bridge and worked my way up. The water was a little high (but manageable) yesterday. It seemed to have receded a little this morning.

    I figured that there would have been a few more folks up there. We were it until about 5 when a group of four rolled in.

    Good luck.
