Spring Fishing!

We have had some decent weather this Spring, and I've had the chance to get out on the river quite a few times, either solo, or with good friends.  I've found that in these weeks before the runoff, the trout can have quite the appetite.  Although midges seem to be what they are most interested in, last week I caught a nice brown on a size 14 Parachute Adams.  I enjoyed nymph fishing, but there is nothing like catching a trout on a nice, juicy, dry fly!

Here are a few photos compiled from the last couple of weeks astream.

                          A friend caught this 19 inch brown as measured on the Scott S4.

                              I caught this brown on a olive midge I created on the vice

The remains of winter...
