The morning started off below freezing, but it warmed up quickly.

I quickly caught a small rainbow in a swift, but deep run.
Around 1PM, I finally started getting some fish to rise to my dry fly (mostly rainbows and a few browns), but they mostly just bumped the fly or nipped at the rubber legs. I was too lazy to change up my fly to try to find something they wanted better, and I really was just happy to watch them rise up, regardless if I hooked them or not. I did catch a few of them, and I had one brown that was over 12" swat at it. I missed the hookset on the dry, but my dropper snagged it in the tail. Unfortunately, the hook came free after a few seconds of fighting the fish in the current. I would like to have caught that one.
I fished upstream further and eventually came to a deep, slow pool. I could see a nicely colored brook trout at the bottom. Not seeing any "mates" in the pool with him, I decided I'd make a few casts and try to catch it. The first cast was a good one and I watched at the fish rose a about a foot off the bottom and took my dropper about 2-feet below the surface.
Nicely done. I smite you now.
good chit man, good chit.
