I'm gonna fish either the little river or the middle prong tomorrow. I'm gonna begin fishing a black caddis or bwo, with either a beadhead pheasant tail, or prince nymph. I'll probably just use the dry as an indicator, and switch nymphs till I find something that works. I wouldn't take my word for it though. I haven't fished the park since september, and I've never fished in the winter. Of course the temps have been up lately, so it may be some good fishing tomorrow. Let's hope.

the weather on Sat. is to be in the mid 40's with the rain coming in the afternoon. Be careful that you don't get caught by the falls if the weather turns nasty. I myself would try a dry fly yellowish colors with a heavy nymph dropped behind. Good luck and take some pictures.

The trip turned into more of a hiking trip than a fishing trip which was fine with me. I brought my rod along and hit 5 or 6 holes along the way up to the falls. I started with a caddis and #16 bh prince. I had no luck, but then I swithed to a quill gordon after I noticed one come off. In the next spot I spooked a couple of nice rainbows in the 12 inch range. I didnt have any luck the rest of the time. Only saw one fish rise, but I was not fishing any long stretch of water. I ended up calling it a day after breaking off my tippet and both my flys. I did not bring my waders on the hike, but after fishing the first hole I kind of wished I had brought them, but then again they would have been a pain to haul in addition to my boots. Some light weight hip waders would have been nice though. But like I said it was just a a hiking trip with a friend who dosent fish so I didnt want to turn it into a fishing trip. Looked like they got a little rain up there. Wish I could have fished harder, but it was a great day to be outside.
