Pierce County 5.29.17

I fished a short section of an area stream tonight from about 7:00 until dark. Midges were the ticket, as a Red and Black Midge caught all but one fish on the outing, with the other coming on a flashback pheasant tail. I ended up catching about a dozen total, all between 8 to 12 inches. I did have one around 15″ on but he fell off as I was reaching for him with the net. The streams are definitely higher than normal, but plenty clear.

Great place to end the long weekend.

Aric also fished the Kinni on Sunday evening from about 4:30 to 9:00 and caught about 35 fish, all 12″ and under. He began the outing using a Pheasant Tail and Zebra Midge but noticed quite a few fish rising to sulphurs, so he ended up catching 10 or so on top using a size 16 Sulphur Parachute.


Lower Kinni 6.10.15

Aric went in the morning from about 9:00 to 11:30, catching two on caddis dries and missing a handful more. There was a decent caddis hatch and the fish were rising quite a bit. We went in the evening from about 7:00 to 9:45 and caught six total on the surface — five on caddis dries and one on a sulphur. The fish were rising sporadically until about 8:45 when they really got going, but when we arrived the occasional riser was usually willing to take an x-caddis.

Let’s hope today’s rains don’t muck up the streams too badly!
