So, I got up early and headed out. I went behind the cabin and tried to fish the stream there. It had a few people already there so I decided to head to the big pool out by cabin 15. Usually when I come to Harman's it is in September and this pool is very slow moving. I wasn't sure what I would find this go around. Upon arriving at the pool, I saw that the water looked great. This is standing in the middle of the pool and looking up stream:
and this is looking down stream:
It is a rather large pool to work. Plus there is some fast water at the top that one could work. Anyways, I decided to stay with the black woolly bugger. I could see the bows cruising throughout the pool. There were some big ones! Throwing the black woolly bugger yielded a number of follows at first. After a while though, they got bored with it. I noticed though that they appeared to be sipping midges off the top. Some of these guys were going to town. I even saw some browns getting in on the action. Nothing I threw at them though worked. I, of course, left all of my dries at the cabin. I figured I wouldn't need them since it was November and I would only be using nymphs and streamers. In the end, I did manage to land three. I, as usual, lost more than I landed. Go figure. Here are some photos of the three I managed to net:
With three bows netted, and the time approaching noon, I decided to call it and head back tot he cabin for some grub. Stay tuned for the afternoon/evening session when I landed some big bows.
