July 22 - High Water means a Swift River Trip

Thank God for the Swift River. With every river and stream now approaching 10 to 15 times their average flow the deminutive Swift stays low and clear and COLD! I went the Tuesday night for a few hours. The fishing was slow but the trout that I caught were all large and hard fighters.

The location was the "Pipe" area. The rainbows were all caught on different flies but they were all either size 18 or 20 and mostly a dark color. The "hotspot" worked well.

The Millers will be more of a kyak course than a trout stream for most of the next week. See you on the Swift!!

Hit the Swift Friday...was a fun day despite the high #'s of fish I either busted off or lost.

No complaints though, as it definitely beat working!

"Busted off". I know what you mean. Had to tie a few scuds last night to replenish my stock.
