Congrats! Looks like you are effectively shaking off those long winter blues as well as the cabin fever.

Thanks, I do not know what the temps were. I try not to carry too much stuff with me when I fish. I used to be really good at filling every pocket, clip, box, etc. Then I junked most of it and only carry the necessities. And sometimes, I even forget some of those.

What size caddis and BHPT do you guys normally use?
Also, how far do you drop the BHPT below the caddis?
Last time I tried this, my caddis would sink very quickly.
Thanks for the help in advance.

Awesome pictures. Glad you had a successful trip. Wish I could get out there and get into some of that success.

I normally fish with both being a size 16. This particular trip, the BHPT was a size 18. It just happened to be what was hooked on my fly patch from last trip. Sometimes, I'll go to a size 18 caddis fly, but then I won't fish a dropper with it. I normally fish my dropper around 20 inches below my dry.

You may want some other opinions from mine. I normally won't fish anything but dries in the park. Fishing droppers is new to me, and now that the fish are taking dry flies regularly, I probably won't tie on another until next February.

Arrrgggggghhh! I want to go fishing! Not much time right now but thanks for sharing the pix and the great day in the park. That is a classic stream. I feel sure that you won't tell where it is but I feel that just about any stream is worth the trip .I want to take my grandsons up there for their first trout on a fly rod. What could be better?
