Stump Creek

On Saturday I went fishing to Stump Creek in Eastern Idaho. The water was still a little high and off color. Worse than the water...not a single hatch  of any kind on the creek. It was a little weird to be on a creek without any bugs flying around. I was still able to catch 11 trout, mostly 6-10" cutthroats with one 14" brown.

Top flies for the day were a size 14-16 beadhead hare's ear, a size 4-6 beadhead black and red wooly bugger, and a size 4 muddler minnow for the brown. I fished all the flies with split shot about 10-14 inches above the fly.

Here are a couple of pictures of the fish and the Stump Creek Valley:
