I wanted to fish lower on the river to see if I could find some fish taking isos. I found the bugs but only the cedar waxings and I noticed them. The fish pretty much ignored them but it is always a pleasure to watch and listen to the wax wings in flight. The first spot I fished I opted to nyphing the faster moving water with a weighted #12 iso nymph with a smaller dropper. I hooked 3 trout but wasn't able to bring any to the net including one bruiser that crushed the iso nymph at the end of the drift when I let it swing. I could tell it was a really nice fish but I didn't get a good look. The river was a little off-color probably from some overnight rain so decided to head up river toward the dam to find some clearer water and less people floating down the river in inner-tubes.
I don't exactly know what the fish were keying on as darkness enveloped the river but it looked as though there was a spinner fall. As usual, the usual did a fine job of bringing up some nice browns in the dark.
