|Cased caddis were difficult to find in the Beaverhead River below High Bridge...|
|Bob had the hot hand yesterday, putting a feisty rainbow in the net at the launch while I got the boat ready...|
|Cleery I think would agree struggled mightily early yesterday and on the Big Hole Saturday but...|
|...to his credit persevered and around lunch time caught his first trout...|
Saturday we fished the Big Hole. Conditions pointed to a great day but as we all know conditions are not always what they appear. While we did catch a few the hook ups were indeed few and far between. There were caddis around but the trout seemed uninterested. So we stuck to nymphs: SJW, Prince, BH PT, Caddis emerger, Pat's Rubber Leg. We saw little wildlife but a baby moose, apparently all alone for mama moose was nowhere to be seen, wandering the banks bawling pathetically was sort of heartwrenching...hopefully both were soon reunited...
