We saw a great trico hatch from about 9:30 to 11:30 AM today which brought numerous fish to the surface to feed on spinners along the edges and in slower water. Nymph action was decent the rest of the day but not what I'd call red hot. Most of the fish were eating PMD nymphs like hot belly pheasant tails and chocolate emergers, but we also got a couple on worms. We found some fish in the usual pools, but also sight-fishing riffles in the afternoon. They were a bit fickle, so persistence was key to catching them.
