Tricos, Tricos and more Tricos!  It's ridiculous how many Tricos are on the water.  It's almost too many to compete with.  The best fishing is in the morning and getting out early is a good thing.  A Purple Para Wulff sz 18-20 with an organza or cdc spinner has been a very effective way to get those tricky fish.  If you're into small flies and technical fishing this is the place to be.  Hoppers in the afternoon with a Czech Nymph, PT, Micro May or RS2 has been finishing off the day well.
