It absolutely poured in the Picabo, Idaho area today and it lasted for nearly 3 hours. The heavy rain and the longevity of it pushed most fisherman off of the Creek. I sat it out in the car and on the water and around 4:15 there was a blanket Baetis emergence where I was. Silver Creek needs the water and the Creek is to-the-bank full in many spots. The Brown Drake hatch may even delay a few more days. I saw a bunch of Brown drake duns on Friday night at the Picabo Bridge. It was a trickle of a hatch, but there were bugs. It was a bit hard watching the few bugs on the water get eaten and not being able to fish. The season didn't open until this Saturday.
