I hit the Swift in the early morning, and made my way up to the Y-Pool. There was almost nobody there. Very weird at the Swift. Anyways, I caught a bunch of tiny brookies (never gets old!) on tiny dries, and had a blast doing it. It was very cold, especially because it was so early, and a lot of fish were sluggish.
After a while, I decided to fish for some rainbows in the “Bubbler Arm”, so I decided to wake them up with my “Junk Special”. This is the name I have dubbed one of my most productive rigs, a rig that would make many fly fishermen cringe. A egg and San Juan Worm combo. Well, it worked pretty well – I took 4 rainbows in an hour, 2 on the egg, 2 on the worm. That was it – I was only there for a few hours. Not a bad outing, and I’ll be back soon.
