Callibaetis and Baetis; Fall Silver Creek
I went to the South Fork of Boise River first today after long long interval though, I was fed up with a bunch of anglers.
So I change the destination to the Silver Creek.
At Sullivan Lake(Slough), I did see some rise and no fishermen there. I found some callibaetis dun were sipped by trout.
I caught first one by #16 dun pattern soon. It was a kind of small one, but good start for me.
It was beautiful day there.
I caught some fish there. The largest one was 15incher, so beautiful.
This dun gave me a luck.
Around four o'clock, rises were stopped.
Then I moved to the junction of Loving Creek as second hole.
I found a few baetis dun there, so I selected its dun pattern without hesitation.
Although the number of rise was not so many, I found some certain ones.
The rising spot was so difficult to drift the dry fly naturally.
Fortunately I had good luck.
It was 16inch/40cm pretty colored one. I was so satisfied with this result.
After that, the rise was faded away, and I ended fishing.
I felt I made a better progress than last year.
