Over the course of the afternoon we worked our way upriver, stopping to watch the soft pockets of water along the way for risers. In about a half dozen locations we found pods of fish rising to midges, some of the fish being quite large. By making a concerted effort to work each pool from tail to head, and by quickly playing hooked fish away from the pod, we were able to take multiple fish from each location. All in all, the hatch provided a few hours of fun and challenging dry fly fishing, and in January of all months!
