Taylor River

The Taylor River has always been a special place.   It is located in a beautiful canyon, and holds some very nice trout.   It's not an easy river to wade, and you have to learn its hidden secrets, but once you do the Taylor rewards you with a diversity of water that keeps you on the water until it is too dark to see the fly. 

The fish were looking up this year...mostly feasting on big PMD's and some smaller BWO's.   It was a dry fly paradise for each day we fished.   We also spent a little time in the famous C&R section near the dam.   It is generally crowded, and we haven't spent a lot of time there in the past.   The C&R is a very technical stretch, and tiny nymphs, mysis shrimp and small tippets are the rule.  This year we decided to spend a few hours there, and we landed quite a few nice fish on size 12 dry flies...imagine that!
