Another "prospecting" run on the middle Root' pays off with some of the better fishing of this spring season. Fish moving to dry flies in the afternoon keeping us very happy, harbingers of summer months to come. These sweet Cutthroats all ate Skwalas, some below islands, a few hanging on hard banks, and all were chunked out from a good eatin'.
These gutted-out Cutts and Rainbows are digging the high water we've been having this spring. Lots of nymphs in the system and fewer fishermen then a few weeks ago makes for eager hunting. Get out on the river and find some solace with a fly rod before runoff shuts it all down.
