The dryfly practice with the bluegill the other day really payed off. Caught a total of 5 rainbows and 2 browns. One I was kind of questioning it being a brook it didn't have a red underbelly. I'll let you guys decide.

I figured it wasn't. It was just oddly patterened and kinda bland. Not used to seeing that up there. He also didn't up much of a fight other than a few jumps. For the size and color though I comparing it to the brown my son pulled out there a few weeks back. Btw there is something big and red up there that I chased for about an hour. But it wasn't hungry. 😜

Bubba, I know EXACTLY where that piece of the river is you showed in the video...I caught several over the years in that same stretch of water.
Riper, I agree, those fish definitely need to eat. I don't understand why they're so thin, since there is an abundance of feed available, or at least there used to be. I haven't fished the canyon for a few years now.

I think part of it is how dry it was up there at the beginning of the year. I've been fishing up there most of the spring and summer and up until the past couple weeks the hatches have been light. Just my thoughts on it. We have caught some nice fattys out of there for you.
I enjoy that stretch. When it isn't so slammed like on the weekends. Also it is a good easy place to take my son and get him in the water.
