We had 11 volunteers out angling on Saturday, plus another crew of hree who were out deploying temperature probes.
The water conditions were great, except for some showers in the afternoon. Some folks were exposed to showers - others to baths (the bathers were Karen H and John M).
4 folks started at the logjam and went upstream, 4 went downstream from the logjam and 3 more started further downstream on Dismal Creek.
- 9 Grayling were PIT tagged, many of them 36cm.
- 6 more were landed under the 25cm size limit for tagging.
- Several more were hooked, but not landed (must be early season rustiness).
- 5 Mountain Whitefish, biggest was 41cm
Above the logjam, Grayling were rising to dry flies (naturals), and were mostly caught with Caddis patterns.
Below the logjam, there were no observations of fish rising, but they were taking nymph patterns such as Prince Nymph.
Another group went out separately and recorded 4 more grayling.
