Rush River 7.2.16

I fished the Rush tonight from about 8:00 until dark. There was very little surface activity when I arrived, so I started out with a Euro pheasant tail nymph and zebra midge. I caught five or six small browns and brookies on the nymph rig before getting to a deeper pool where there were quite a few risers. It looked like they were rising to midges, and since it was getting dark I didn’t feel like tying on a Griffith’s Gnat and barely being able to see it on the water, so I tied on a hippy stomper. I quickly pulled three browns out of the pool on the stomper before it was too dark to see the fly, including one around 11-12 inches to finish off the night.
