Hit the Tully about 7 am today, sunny water about 67 degrees when I checked it at 1030, guides out with sports, great day. AS usual (for me) tough morning on the flats - sporadic rising, 16-18 caddis on the water very slight, 28 or 30 black midge, even might be a black fly, tricos 24s, but very few, water brownish and feeling a little high. Threw everythng, to no avail. Guy walks in above me around 9 am tosses in "one of Jeff's worms" and starts hammering them 5 or 6 in no time including one enormous rainbow. After a while and a couple smallmouths i headed down to the riffles just below the flats ready to list all my stuff on eBay and threw in a hot pink collared BH PT and baddabing the biggest rainbow I think I've ever caught, didn't fit in the net until it bent double and still the tail hanging out. Scarlet stripe, bronze head, every bit of 22 inches. Not kidding. Not a particularly tough fighter tho.
Couple more casts decided it wasn't getting any better that day. Woulda paid $10 for one Jeff's Worm.

Rock onward friends.

Last time I was at the Tully in mid may we fished the water works and I have never landed so many fish. They were taking everything from caddis to streamers. Great stream!

I had a really good day there in May as well. I caught well into the teens in a couple hours and most fish were over 15". It was by far the best day I have had on the Tully. I was fortunate to have this happen, because I had gotten skunked on my 2 previous outings there.

I was also out Monday morning from about 6:30 - 9:30. The water was 64* at 7 AM. The fish were on the Trico's pretty hard. I was able to get a bunch with a size 24 Trico spinner, but I missed more than I caught. After things slowed down on top, I went under with a weighted Caddis and Prince dropper, trying my hand at a little tight-lining. I was able to get a couple more including this pretty pig.
