The lower sections of the river were just not Wild enough for our tastes so we headed up to the little water past all that. This was a pretty epic day of fishing all-in-all considering the number and size of the fish we saw and caught...the scenery wasn't bad either.
The first pool, 6:30AM.
One of the feeder creeks just above the first pool.
The side feeder creeks were steep! I hiked up this one a couple hundred yards expecting to come to a nice pool at some point, but didn't it was just continuous falls like this ledge after ledge after ledge...so went back down to the river and returned on my course.
Baby 'bows were everywhere; the future looks bright.
An average rainbow that couldn't resist the stimulus of the Stimulator.
The "lunch pool"; the water was so cold, clean and clear, almost didn't want to filter it. Just sitting watching the fish feed while we also ate was pretty awesome.
The first and only fish caught in the pool pictured above; hard to get repeat catches in pools like that.
A nice fighting rainbow
Second biggest of the day. (the biggest was not ready for her closeup)
