I was right, and was rewarded for the effort. I got steamside and was fishing by 1:00. I rigged up with my regular olive size 16 caddis fly with a size 18 BHPT dropped off it. By 2:00 I had not had a single look at the caddis fly, but had caught 4-5 on the dropper.

There was even sign in the coyote ****. It was full of hair, almost like they have been eating nothing but pigs.

    Good ideal on fishing the out of the way creeks. The brookies seem to be very plump. What more could could a man ask for.
