A couple of us decided to get out of the heat and head for a pond just over 9,000'.
We got there about 8:00 and fished until 2:30 using our fly gear. We used fast sinking lines with the usual leeches, buggers, and soft hackles. The fishing was slow but the quality of the fish was good. We picked up all tiger trout from 14" to 19". We wiffed a few but not many so it was really slow for us.

There were not many people fishing there today, with one boat and a handful of shore anglers.

The water temperature was 66-70 degrees and the visibility in the water of about 8'-9'. The reservoir is 60% full and going down.

We got a bonus for our trip today, a cow moose came out of the trees and walked across a clearing so we could see her. We had a cow and a calf swim across a few years back while we were out in our tubes, pretty cool.

The weather was perfect, with calm winds and modest temperatures. My observation holds true, when the weather is good, the fishing is not. ;)
