Clear Creek and a hopper

Headed up high on Clear Creek to try my luck for the afternoon, landing near Empire for the first stop.  I walk downstream a ways and then fish my way back up.  I takes me a few tries with different patterns before I finally find one that works, and then I was off to the races.  After tying on the para-hopper I am into fish at almost every spot. 

Over the next few hours I hit every edge, plunge pool, run, and slack water to be found and catch a couple dozen fish by the end.  Ended up having great weather all day and other than getting my furled line frayed it was pretty much a perfect day.


Rod: Iwana 12' 6/4
Line:  Furled 10 1/2', Level Line 12' #4
Fly that Worked:  Olive Para-Hopper
