I made my first trip to the sipsey fork Saturday (1-27). The midges were active. My catching was slow in the morning (zip), but picked up considerably after lunch (7 to hand, 3 ldr's). All fish were caught on midges, and all were released. I talked to several folks who were leaving while I was eating my sandwich at the truck, and they also reported slow mornings. The surface temperature warmed in the afternoon, maybe the water did also.
It was great having all the room for backcasts.
The people I spoke with were all nice.
The minimum flow needs to be increased. The sipsey gives new meaning to the term "long drifts". I enjoy the challenge of slow water, but just a little more flow would help. I'm glad to see from other posts that this is being discussed.
Overall, I enjoyed my trip to the sipsey, and I will return soon.
