My cousin came into town from Idaho. He had never fly fished so I decided to take him out. Fished spinney from like 8-1130 when it got windy. Tried a bunch of different flies and no luck. First time I've been skunked there from the tube. There were like ten people on the whole res. It was practically empty. Didn't see much insect activity and saw maybe one fish surface the entire time. Went to eleven mile canyon after the res and immediately things started looking up. Tons of fish sipping dries all over. Caught a ton. Got one on a hopper, a handful on a trico pattern and the majority on my tung sz18 candy cane.( I can't believe how well this pattern works) it was a great day overall. Tons of bugs in the air. Saw some caddis and tried a caddis pattern but they wanted the trico. Getting skunked at spinney was a bummer but the canyon made up for it. We fished until it was dark and then headed home. I'll probably head back to South Park next weekend so illness sure to keep you posted.
