Bonus guide’s day off report for the Big T. Fished there last night from 4-8. River is tough right now with the high water. Wading is a challenge – be very careful. The fish were sitting in the soft water along the banks. I fished in the canyon and in the meadow below the dam. If you can get good drifts in the opposite bank soft water, and control your line over the fast middle currents, fish were rising well to 16 x-caddis and 16 ants. Lots of bugs, and some rising fish, after 7 and the sun started going down. Tons of caddis and midges about, with fish rising to caddis. Also saw a few drake-sized bugs, but they floated uninterrupted.
