Fished yesterday with my older boy and two "newbies". We fished a medium-sized drainage and it was dead clear. We walked by one confluence with a major trib and observed that it was very turbid. So, still some variability out there but gut feeling is most everything is fishable.

Got a good number of fish nymphing. My son "guided" the new kid to his first ever trout on the fly. Pretty fun to observe. Kid was pretty pumped up.

Watching for risers; again, just not happening. Saw only a handful. I put the rookie adult on one that was eating mid column; he drifted a SH down to the fish and we watched it come up, eat the fly. He hooked the fish but it came off.

Heck of an afternoon by any measure; full sun and down in the valley, no wind.
