Had the chance to get out for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. I figured with the cooler temps the fish would be interested in streamers. In the first good run, I did manage a nice brown on a peacock and dark hen hackle bugger. Just for kicks I tried a black stimulator (pattern from Ben over at http://theleaper.blogspot.com) to fish some slow pools and was surprised by the interest. I fished the stimulator for the rest of the afternoon and enjoyed watching the explosive slashes that make fishing big dries in small streams such a pleasure. A handful of nicely colored browns and a brookie were photographed and sent on their way.
