We received this report from our friend Caleb Bagley this morning:

Wanted to let you know that Smith's fished very well yesterday. Probably brought 20 to hand fishing from 7:30-12:30, two that measured 15 and 16 inches on my rod. Went deep (got hung every fifth or sixth cast)and fairly small. A #16 bead-head flashback pheasant tail with a #20 zebra disco midge(black with yellow ribbing) dropped off the back. Three shots in front of the BHPT and 2 in front of the midge and greased the whole rig in Zink. Caught fish across the entire DH. At one point caught five fish in five cast. Great day to be on the water. Everyone I talked to said that it was slow, I think most people don't realize how deep you have to be and that it must be put in the fish's face (that's something I learned from Dredger's tips and articles). Just wanted to let you know.

Tight Lines!
