Today Stan and I made the trek to the Swift River. 60F air temps and 46F water temp was close to December perfection. The video is a chunky rainbow from below the hatchery pipe.
We had the whole run to ourselves for most of the morning. The water was pretty high (about 160 CFS) compared to the low flows of the last couple months. Almost no rises were seen, so most fish were fooled with nymphs, such as olive scuds.
