Rush River 5.24.17

Dad and I fished after work this evening from about 6:30 to 9:00. The stream was in great condition after the last rains — still a little high with a slight stain. Dad ended up catching five browns on a Copper John and zebra midge, with all but one coming on the Copper John. I caught thirteen or fourteen on a Tungsten Torpedo jig nymph variation and a red and black midge. Dad had the big fish of the night though, with this nice 14 or 15″ right before dark.

Most of our fish were caught in shallow pocket water — the deeper runs weren’t very productive tonight. There wasn’t much rising, other than to the occasional BWO. It looks like we’ll have great conditions for fishing through the weekend!
