As I slipped into a local pool on the South Branch I scanned for activity. At first glance it seemed a bit sparse. However, first impressions were a little deceiving. While not a blizzard hatch by any stretch of the imagination, trout were rising purposefully and consistently. I finally took a beautiful wild Brownie on a #16 Sulphur Comparadun, a personal favorite on many of our glassy pools. The fine weather we've been enjoying has seen good flows and moderate temperatures.
