I found a great spot today at the gorge’s downstream end, where the larger fish rose up against the wall. I hooked a giant rainbow, but it broke the line. I was fishing a hopper dropper set up. I used this type of system most of the day, foam hoppers and little green bead head nymphs. I was getting takes on the hopper for a time, but they did not become hooked. I had success with the midge dropper.
As the morning progressed, more and larger fish surfaced to pick off what looked like an upside-down spider, and the first couple of feet off the river surface was a cloud of tiny midges.
I still managed to catch a few fish and got to know this stretch of the river well. There are no pictures cause I am not bringing my iPhone out into the water for vanity, but I will put in some pictures of my amigo Juan Pablo and some of the excellent fish he caught.
My friend went further upstream and found a sweet spot in the river where it is almost lake-like. He reported there were many beautiful large trout willing to take dry flies.
