Floyd and I started out on the river and it was coming up and getting muddy. Working the edges wasn't producing and we decided to try a lake that was a short drive but higher in elevation. No luck there as the road was closed due to it still being drifted in from the winter. On to the high country then, as we decided to pursue trout in the highest reaches of a mountain stream that we could boulder and posthole up in search of pocket water trout. We found some of the mountain gems we were searching for fishing dry / dropper combos.
