Big Green River, Grant County 03/06/10

Page 33 on your Delorme map, D4. I fished off County Road K, just north of Werley.
1:30 p.m. Plenty of grey midges, some surface-feeding. Wading below riffles, 50 yards downstream from the bridge.
Caught 9" rainbow, 36" below a strike indicator, small split shot 6" up from a #14 beadhead prince nymph. Got very cold water down my right hip wader. Was having so much fun that I kept fishing anyway. Was a very cold ride home!
