We decided to fish this stretch due to the big rains the day before which would not affect these waters. The decision was a good one; conditions were perfect. Gerry the 'Stream Vacuum' and Freddie 'The Prince' fished just downsteam of the Rebers bridge and I started just upstream of bridge. In short order they started hammering fish on bead head pheasant tails; hares ears and princes. Fish were splashing all around them. I did not get a hit; and politely asked them if I could fish across from them. They said ok and I generated quite a wake getting into position. Now I was into fish, finishing with 5 while Fred and Gerry eash released 20 or so. Fishing tiger midges were hot. Our fun was cut short when the ranger appeared on bridge to inform us that they were releaseing from Blue Marsh and we had 20 minutes before wading was out of the question; and he was right. Only managed to get 3 hours in but some nice fish were caught by all..Gerry with a nice 19-20 inch brown. A few 15 inch fish were released. The commission said they will be bigger. Just wish the release didn't occur when it did.

Tis the season for zebra and tiger midges on the tully. I love it.

any idea how long the release is due to go on?

Also, what size PTs were working well?

I'm thinkin about making a run up there soon if the flows are down.

Tiger midges (NOT)...zebra midges were hot. According to the ranger he said 1 week on the release. We always go to USGS Water Resources to check real time stream flows to give us an idea on conditions. Size of nymph didn't matter; we fished 12's down to small zebras...as long as it had a bead head or flash back they ate it.

So, I guess it appears that they stocked, and by the sounds of things threw all the buckets right the bridge. Congrats on a nice day out - they likely would have eaten anything though...
