Ok, so with a new phone with GPS that works, I headed out on the most direct route to the creek. 1:30, not too bad and if I had bothered to check earlier I would have gone up here years ago, my bad, as they say.  Got off to a slow start as I left my coffee at the house, turned back, 10 minutes lost. Then I was trying to connect the new phone to the car via blue tooth, it wasn't happening, so I pulled over in frustration and searched the internet for solutions, No go on that, burned about 10 more minutes efff around with that. It was close to 10 when I arrived at the trailhead, seven cars, crap, where to park, oh it'll fit right in here.... Geared up, realized I forgot my pune net, and after hitting the trail, I realized I forgot the neutral density filter, almost turned back as that was one thing I wanted to do, take more slow-shutter speed photos...

I was planning on fishing up higher but as I hiked in the wind was blowing straight down the gorge and my dry fly plans were going to prove to be frustrating. It was a cool morning, still in the 50s but there wasn't a cloud in the sky, so the day warmed up quickly.

Listened to Tom on the way up, he was talking to Tim Linehan of Linehan Outfitters in Libby, Montana where he has a lodge and guide business on the Kootenai River. Interesting that the only native rainbows to Montana are up in that drainage.

Didn't see a soul on the walk-in, but the  Silene virginica was dotting the forest floor with a splash of color.

The fish were eager to take the fly and many, all brookies came to hand when I could place the fly properly without the wind interfering with the trajectory or blowing the line and fly off the water.

Between fish I looked at the wild flowers and flying trout food.

You fish that stream enough, you turn into Doug.  Be careful.
