My son and I went to the Acid Depo. meeting this morning at Park Headquarters.
The meeting ended earlier than I expected so we went down behind Park Headquarters to look at the stream and check the water temp.
It was 38 deg. at about 11 am. Way to cold to expect much action.
Since he is 13 and still learning the flyrod, I took him back down to G-burg to fish the DH section.
We got our 1 day permits and went down to the "Holt" picnic area and kids stream to gear up. We watched all the fish in the kids pool from the bridge and they seemed to be actively feeding. We started fishing above the childrens section and located some good stockers in the deepest pools. I missed a couple of fish before landing a nice 16" rainbow. I caught another upstream at the next good pool.
He took over the rod and after missing a few strikes, he finally hooked up on a solid fish. The fat rainbow measured out to be 18" and I could tell he was pleased to have caught the biggest fish of the day once again!
