The Y Pool Revisited
The Y Pool has trout. Not the epic amounts of the spring/early summers of the last decade but enough to keep you guessing and busy. My client missed 6 this morning, all on dries with the last 4 being "almost" fooled on ants and beetles.
The sad part is that the stretch from the Y Pool down to the bench by the stairway has nothing or nothing that I could see. The Pipe was the typical Pipe with a scattering of bows and brookies. I finally gave my 5ft 9 inch 3 wt glass rod it's maiden voyage working little 15-20 foot casts for an hour. I took 2 bows and two brookies on an 18 sulphur soft hackle. The verdict: Yes, you can cast into tight spots but it's still a novelty rod. I'll give it a second look when I get around to it.
July 1st marks the change in regulations below RT 9 with the traditional stocking. Maybe some of those fish will end up above the bridge!
The Millers and the EB have been doing well. My guys spent an hour and a half working the riffles at the head of the Orcutt Pool at 11am of all times and hooked up with about a half dozen trout with one large brown breaking free. Size 14 Australian Possum bead heads did the trick.
Water levels are great and you should be out there!!!!!!
