That's a long way to go to catch a few punes....
The wheels were going to turn on a 2, so instead of starting out on top and moving down low (which was probably a better idea) I started low. There were only a few anglers and plenty of open water. There was nothing coming off the water and I didn't see any rises.
I thought I had figured out the euro game, but all I caught were pune rainbows and I found the bottom too many times and lost a bunch of flies.
A Jon boat with three fisherpeople made an effort to go behind me, which was mighty kind as one guy donned a pair on waders just to shove the boat through a rock garden.
When I cast and watched the flies drift and get sucked under yet another rock and hopelessly snagged, I moved on to friendlier water.
I caught more pune rainbows.
After a couple of hours of this I noticed that trout were sporadically sipping emergers. I hiked back to the car to switch rods.
I recently washed, treated, and repaired the welded loop on the 5 wt. line. I had acquired an Airflow floating polyleader and wanted to try it. I managed to entice a few of the sipping brown trout before a group of kayakers barreled through and interrupted. I drank a beer and waited, but then a couple of girls took an inflatable out into the run and paddled up and down and all around. I moved on. Back at the car I ran into an angler from CLT who also had a very slow day.
