Tricos are there and the fish are eating them. Not many fish are eating on top, most of the fish are eating below the surface on the drowned duns and any drowned spinners. Along with that, you have some caddis coming off along with some egg layers on the water.
We started off with nymphs and soon heard some big splashes from big fish eating something off the surface. "That doesn't sound like a fish sipping duns or spinners". I took 2 rods with me just in case I needed a dry when I had a nymph rig on. For me, the nymph rod was in my hands the most as I targeted the deeper water. My first choice was a San Juan Worm followed by a #20 Black Sparkle Wing RS2. That was a good choice as the RS2 imitated a drowned trico. Most of the fish were lake fish as some of them were just as wide as they were long. The thing I love about the Dream Stream is that the fish are freight trains. When they decide that they want to go, there is nothing that will stop them. You can only hop that your knots hold.

|18.5 ". They feel a lot bigger. Still, it's not a bad fish.|
