I decided to go directly to the VFW Bridge today. Got there at 0730. Got my first one on a SilverBlue HD @ 80'--a nice Eagle Lake guy about 16". The morning went pretty much like that--got four or five fish, most of them on the SilverBlueHD but a couple on the OrangeGreenHD. That bite came to a close around 1000.

I later moved down to Dry Fork. It was slow there also. But I got a 17" Salmon on the Purple/White HD and a nice Trout on the SilverBlueHD I moved on out to the Dry Fork mouth and got a couple of nice ones--two at the last point before entering Dry Fork and another closer to the dam.

Once again, the Silver/Blue Hummdinger was the workhorse for me today.

I was fishing 75' to 100'. However, I ran into a Forest Service Fisheries Biologist, and he said he had similar results at 50 to 75.

And of course, the disclaimer. If you come out tomorrow, don't be suprised if lyo do better than me...
