Fishing today was pleasant. The past few days have been sunny and warm, but today the temperature dropped down to the 40s. Some trout were feeding on midges coming off the surface, but did not seem to enjoy my imitations. I switched to a trusty hair's ear nymph and hooked a nice rainbow. A local streamer that called a "Christmas Tree" also proved effective.

Paul with the first rainbow of the day. This catch was awesome. We saw a fish about 7 feet in front of us. Paul cast a nymph 20 feet upstream and let the fly dead drift down. The fish moved into position and chomped when the fly arrived.
