Even with the decision to go out of the way I still wasn't all that motivated, which made for some cool pictures en route.

After a short hike I was fishing, and was quickly into a couple of Cutthroat Trout on a BH-Pheasant Tail. Finally I was finding the motivation I needed and decided to make the long hike to the prime area.

mushrooms on hilltops
|Definitely worth the hike|
|First of many chubby browns|

|Water's getting dirtier|
Seemed like every thirty yards or so I'd come up on another hole that would produce fish after chubby fish. In between I was picking up some in the pocket water. The action stayed hot even through a downpour until suddenly I wasn't picking up hardly any fish. Knowing that time was short I began making the hike out. A different perspective made it very clear that the water clarity had taken a turn for the worst, luckily my day was done anyway.
|That was a lot clearer before...|
|Such a fatty|
