So Much Water Volume 1 Issue 3 Summer 2015 - Page 31

This is a tail water so yes, they do run water to generate power so, as always, be aware of your surroundings, water levels and your exit path. Rainbows are the primary species but Browns are also present. Some habitat improvements over the years has helped improve the Brown population some. A slot limit is in effect in all of the catch and keep areas so know your regulations.

In all the conversations I’ve had, midges seem to be the pattern of choice, Charlotte’s Redneck Midge, Razor Back Midge and Bryce’s Midge (aka “That Dam Midge’) are a few local favorites. I still like the standard black and silver zebra midge in sizes 20 to 16, (don’t leave home without em). Of course, other patterns can serve a fisher well. Scuds and sowbugs sizes 18 to 14 in gray, olive and brown can do well. A particular favorite is the McLellan Hunchback scud. Soft hackles like the Red Ass, Partridge, Partridge and yellow and Submarines are also good patterns to have in your box.
