Took a break around noon and stopped by the Reel Fly Shop for some suggestions... bought Trout Beads and went back after lunch to Lazy L&L. Nice couple managing the store suggested trying up river. Gave it a shot and had a few "ticks" on the Trout Beads but no hook ups.
Decided to go back to the Devil's Playground and work the upper pool and shallows. Saw a couple of Trout feeding on (what looked like) midges. But, could not get them to take a fishing fly.
Moved downriver and started fishing the fast water by the steps. Tied on a Guadalupana (a bigger one than the one we used earlier) and started swinging it in the current. Finally had a hook up; a Rainbow Trout that went about 14" in size. Released it as it did not meet the 18" minimum for that section of the river.
Long day in the cold rain fishing but still had a great time!
