Here are a few pics from my trip to a little tributary of the Clark Fork. The smaller fish were taking big foam bugs, while the big boys were hunkered down on bottom because of the bright sunlight. Nothing a little tungsten bead soft-hackle couldn't cure though! The size of some of these trout surprised me because this creek is only 20 feet wide in most places, but has plenty of deep runs for big fish to hide. I can't wait to fish the mouths of some of these tribs this fall when the browns are getting ready to spawn. It should be good...

Nice Wayne! We used to locate those tribs to the CF, Blackfoot and the Bitterroot on topo maps. Many of those trib's headwaters are small lakes and ponds which have great cut populations. One of my roommates was a pilot who would locate these trib/lake setups and with the topo map we'd make a 2-3 day tripout of it.
