I had a great day today and was able to fool 22 trout into coming to the net. Fishing the South Fork of the Rio Grande River above South Fork, Colorado. Today I had a mixed bag of Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout and it was interesting to see what each species was caught on. I think all the Rainbows were caught on a Prince Nymph which is a sinking fly. The Brookies seem to be all caught on a dry fly and I was using a Royal Coachman in size 16. The Brown Trout were a mixed lot hitting both on top and subsurface.
The bigger fish were taken in the deeper runs and only on they sinking fly. I also tried a few of the BB shot Power Bait pellets and got fast bites on that although I was using a tiny hook and never got one in on that. The hook was just too buried in the bait for a hookup.
The water was a tad off color but that didn't bother the hungry fish.
