To my surprise, I had the entire water to myself yesterday from 2 - 9 pm. Tried dead drifting a scud under a corkie, but no luck, so switched out to a white steamer and immediately had a nice fish on. Hooked a total of 6 nice trout (approx 14 to 20 inches) on various sizes and colors of streamers. Long distance released 4, landed 2. Here is the surprise - Fish started rising constantly approx 2 hours before sunset. Hoping for trout, I put the steamers away and tied on size 16 dry flies to imitate the approx size of caddis and mayflies flying all around me. I hooked at least 20 northern pike minnows of about 6 inches. I had to double haul to get my flies over a weed bed to the rising fish, so casting was fun. I used 4x fluorocarbon and striped or swung the flies to get violent strikes from the little fish. All were hooked in the long, slow, shallow pools below the 2nd fish hatchery before the stream narrows. I hope pike minnows have not replaced the feisty trout that I hooked down there earlier in the year on the same dry flies. Pike minnows fight for 5 seconds max, then nothing, kind of like the whitefish I hook while targeting rainbows on that Yakima.
