Middle Fork Provo River - 9/1/13


On my way back from a great hike with my wife in the Uintas of Utah, we "found" ourselves the middle fork of the Provo. Great public access led me to the headwaters just below the dam of the Jordanelle reservoir near park city.  There were a bunch of guys around but i found a protected stretch with a major mayfly hatch going on and happy dun eaters castable from shore (with some creativity).  I have to say despite great flows its been a rough couple months on the WB (as the summer tends to be for me) so it was a delight when these browns would actually EAT.  The first was a nicely colored brown close to 15 inches which took a large cdc olive pattern. Did not fight like a west branch brown! Caught four more and in true lout fashion I pushed my luck trying to get the theoretical NJ limit.  When i got it I rushed back to the car to the wife who was waiting to go to dinner.  Not bad for an hour and a half tactical mission...i will have to explore more or there on a later trip.
