Small Streams 7-2-13

These are all in good shape now.  This weekend we tried a great one for the entry level fly-fisher. McCoy Creek (From Alpine, WY go south on US 89 to the McCoy Road which goes back into Idaho along the southwest side of Palisades Reservoir) is a major rearing stream for cutthroat trout. This time of year a braggin’ fish there may be just over a foot long, but the creek is full of them feeding on caddisflies and PMDs  right now.    Take that youngster to a meadow location on this creek and present life cycle patterns of these  for sure-fire action.  Traditional attractor patterns (size 12-14) will also work.  An ultra-light rod is ideal, and so is a floating line rigged with a 4X tippet.
