The West Branch was in an interesting condition today. The Still River was blown out, and therefore all of the Farmington bellow the confluence. Above, however, was a fisheable flow and color. The first trout was a Rainbow who took a Zugbug. Even with a very early Hendrickson hatch, I went fishless for several hours. Going down to Riverton Self Storage, I fished a buck tail in the riffle and received a strike. The fish safely avoided the hook. I caught on the Zugbug a brown, then a water snake by hand. The last fish of the day took a mono nymph and was the best of the three.
