Still some snow to contend with getting to the river.

In fact, there were very few places where it felt safe to even try getting to the water. But where I could, it was in great shape.

The run I chose to fish is really deep and fairly fast. Getting a nymph or two down deep enough was problematic. And futile.

However, and as much as I hate to admit it, swinging the big nymphs down and across finally hooked up my first Idaho West Slope cutt for 2012.

There will be more !! And on dries soon enough.
