This past Tuesday I spent a few hours fishing the Sipsey. I was fishing numerous flies trying different presentations in some of the familiar spots I frequent here. As I've said before the Sipsey gets tremendous fishing pressure being the only cold water tailrace in the state. So in order to land trout here, one needs to be persistent, have patience and a willingness to work for the trout you catch.   
The results of persistence, patience, and willingness to work enabled me to land this 20-inch rainbow, the largest I've ever caught on the Sipsey. A tremendous workload for my 10 ft. 3 wt.
High sticking or Euro Nymphing made it possible to work these pocket holes standing downstream and letting my nymph do its magic! Overcast skies helped conceal my presence as I worked in these areas. Sometimes one trout can make a trip and today it proved true for me!!
