Silver Creek In The Rain

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.

Rain drops obliterate the calm Silver Creek flow.
