    So, how's the fishing?
    Are you gonna eat that sandwich?
    Don't mind me, just drying off and soaking some rays.

    Great pose by the bear. Put it in the paper or sell it. Pretty rainbow too. Thanks for posting

    If thats the same bear that was around the sanctuary this morning, I wouldn't count on seeing him again. One bear that was too friendly down there this morning, hopped up on platform, guys fired warning shot. Then 10 min later someone emptied a six shooter around the bend where the bear went. He would just walk right up on people, almost snuck up on us. Be careful if you are heading down there

    5 feet away, wow. I know those bears down there are used to humans, but that is a little to close for comfort in my opinion. When he walked up on us he didn't seem confrontational. He just wanted to get real close. Nice trout in the pictures. I am heading down tomorrow again and will post upon return.

    Fished the Little Willow with my grandchildren last night, bows were very active. I got 4 on my five weight with flesh and beads, while teaching my grandson how to roll cast and drift beads he got 3 and lost twice that many. My 9 year old granddaughter got 3 on her pink spinning rod using eggs. The water is off color and about 18 to 24" higher than normal. Didn't find any salmon at all.

    those are some nice rainbows. how were you going after them? sight fishing? i would like to get into some nice rainbows after the reds finish off, but i can't see a fish in the water if my life was on the line.

    Caught my limit of reds today at he cottonwood hole, took some time though. I caught a 16 inch bow down by the cleaning tables and lost a nice one that was 20in plus. Fish AK, I couldn't see the bows either. Just drifted some flesh flies around carcasses and around the cleaning tables. The past few weeks my friend has been nailing some hue bows on flesh from the falls to the confluence. Good luck.

    no secret to what ive been doing, in between red holes id just walk down the river casting to the opposite shore and hitting spots that looks like a fish would be holding, ive been catching them on a rubber leg hares ear nymph. the big one in the pic, my buddy spotted him for me, most bows that ive caught were in shaded areas on the river. hope it helps good luck.

    thanks for the tips. im just a beginner fly fishermen, and i've only caught pinks with the fly rod. rainbows look like a lot of fun and they are beautiful. do you use strike indicators or weights at all? or just let the fly naturally float down? thanks
