brown trout on the fly

Hi folks, Guided a moderately sized stream yesterday afternoon with an aspiring fly angler.  Cool damp day with showers.  Water levels are still up a bit and the water temperatures are holding in the mid fifties.  Not much for hatching bugs yesterday and we did not see any rising fish.  We nymph fished with a #12 prince and #18 BWO dropper and caught a nice 13" male brown trout.  Not a lot of action yesterday and we did miss another trout.  Looks to stay cool and damp today and then things will clear up.  Hopefully the ran lets up to keep our stream in manageable shape.  Off to chase trout again today.  Remember to clean your gear and keep the non-native species at home.  Have Fun, Willy
