The first pool that we approached, upstream of the hatchery, was filled with trout. Paul gave me first go, and after 15 minutes of perfect drifts with no takers, it seemed like it might be a long day. We followed the stream North, looking for pools holding fish, and came up empty handed despite seeing fish throughout the stream. Two of my fish took the dropper, but to my delight, the brown trout pictured below was eager to take a dry fly. Unfortunately, that was the extent of our success for the remainder of the day.
Most fly-fisherman will tell you that regardless of what you bring to the net, any day on the river is a good day, and that was certainly true of our first trout hike of Paul had been to Passage Creek before, but I had not, and I enjoyed exploring the gorgeous scenery, and even some of the oddities.
