What a week of fishing and after a few tough outings this pastweekend definetly made up for it. Friday myself and a buuddy made our way to Cheesman Canyon and after catching a few shortly after getting
there it started to die out a bit. We missed the Tricos/midges but were able to notice some PMD's becoming active. I did land a nice Brown -after trying to calm him down after 5 jumps, I guess he was a
rainbow for the day! Either the fishing slowed or we had some bad luck seeing how we hit a few holes after Mr. Cheesman himself Pat Dorsey had a few clients on them. Flies of choice: small midge patterns, #22 olive bh WD-40, standard San Juan

Delaney Butte lakes were pretty sweet this weekend (Sun-Mon even)after worrying about crowd control when upon arriving at noon on Sunday I couldn't believe that the place was almost empty.

I fished South Delaney for most of my time and was able to land a number of trout just after the Callibaetis hatch. Trout were more turned onto the standard black patterns and any Crawfish patterns seeing how a guy I fished with found 15 crawdads in his belly...yes it was a nice size fish. I had a double at one point when after catching a few on #16 Griffeth gnat I switched to the standard #14
Par Adams dropping #22 zebra midge for some cruisers near the bank. A nice 17' hit the dry when out of no where the big Cutt I had been after hit the midge seconds later and at one split second had a nice little fight. End result the smaller got off an dthe bigger one now
is on my main photo section on here.

Ended the night on North catching a few dinks and after 2 hours of solitude on the lake a lone fisherman showed up at 8pm to also enjoy a nice sunset and some nice browns.Flies of choice: green scuds,para adams
Callibaetis, Griffeth Gnats, bunny leeches blk/olive, para adams, crawfish patterns, chronomids, small midges and don't forget *anything black works the best at all times! One guy I did meet that cruised in his boat and was a 15 year vet there caught 5 over 25", I may have to
invest in an outboard soon~
