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 patiences and willing to work for the trout you catch.   
The results of persistence, patience and willing to work enabled me to land this 20 inch rainbow, the largest I've ever caught on the Sipsey. A tremendous work load for my 10 ft. 3 wt.
High sticking or Euro Nymphing made it possible to work these pocket holes standing down stream and letting my nymph do its magic! Overcast skies helped conceal my presence as I worked these areas. Sometimes one trout can make a trip and today it proved true for me!!
