But…. At Paulina the Pink Hopper has been an absolute staple the last 2 weeks for me.
I pumped a trout stomach (Throat actually) on Saturday and got some little Minnows in the sample, and tied some balanced leeches on a #12 Jig Hook with a Tan UV Ice Dub and a single strand of Black Flash down each lateral line with a 3mm silver tungsten drop bead and had good success with it since that sample.
Been doing well on Purple Leeches and Brown Leeches too.
And you know I am never without my beetles on the Lakes.
The Metolius itself has been in the smoke, but on and off and the AQI has generally been better there......
