I fooled around trying to catch risers with dries. I missed a trout take on a humpy and caught a nice chub. Then changed to a buck tail and caught a very colorful Smallmouth and then a nice Rainbow Trout.
I continued to wander around, and eventually spotted a trout rising to beatis, of course a bug I couldn't match. I tried a few other patterns, none of which got so much as a brief peek.

Downstream I found an interesting ledge. I crossed the river to get a closer look. The underside of a large granite over hang had been refilled with sand by the river, making a home for hundreds of Ant L:ions and a family of American Toads.
Later on, upstream, a Stimulator saw some action from several Smallmouth Bass. A few Rainbow trout were caught casting a sulfur dun. I even caught my first ever sucker on a stonefly nymph, although I dropped it before I could get to the camera. That was the last fish, bringing the species count up to 6.
