TP and I hit the SOHO yesterday morning.  We started off downstream.  There was nothing hatching spare a few sporadic midges, so we both started out nymphing.  TP was picking em up on pheasant tail nymphs and the bwo emerger was working for me.

We moved upstream a couple of miles and continued to have success with nymphs.  TP and I both got some nice fish and I did manage to find one of the big boys.  It was a blistering fight, line peeled from Hardy reel and it was music to my ears. I fought him downstream through some riffles and he was finally in the net.  We fished for another hour or so and picked up some more bows and browns.

We moved further upstream and the afternoon pulse was hitting.  I guess the extra flow and warmer temps from the morning started dislodging didymo.  We tried moving back downstream, but it was pretty bad there too.  We picked up a couple more fish, but we really had to work for em as we were cleaning the rock shot off the flies after almost every cast. We finished off the day with some fine Leffe Belgian golden ale   0--0

There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.

Very nice.  Seems like the didymo blooms are worse than usual this year...or maybe it's just they're worse this time of year  ???

Very impressive fish and even more so to land in the current of a tailwater.
