Rush River 6.27.16

I fished the Rush tonight from about 7:30 to 9:15. There was very little surface activity when I arrived so I fished with a size 16 Frenchie with a size 18 black zebra midge below it. I ended up catching 8-10 fish, most of them around 8 inches. They did begin feeding on the surface a bit as it got darker on sulphurs, and I talked to another fisherman that had luck with sulphur dry flies.

All of the fish I caught were in shallow riffles under a foot deep. Most of the time it took a dozen or so drifts through a riffle before I could get a take, so make sure to stay patient when nymphing these spots.
