Battle Creek: , by Andrew Harris: Big dry flies: 3 stars

I fished Steve and grandson Chris today on Battle Creek.  We got off to an early start and the river was in much better shape than 2 weeks ago when it was too high.  I was sweating bullets by 2pm though as we had covered a lot of water without many strikes.  Right before our first hike-out opportunity the fish went on the grab.  We decided to fish a little more and my guys got to experience what Battle Creek is known for - tons of grabs on dry flies.  We landed fish up to ten inches and rose a few larger ones on a variety of giant dry flies.  The best flies were a pink hopper and a Turck's tarantula, size 8-10.  We saw some golden stones in the air, tons of hoppers in the upper part of the canyon, and lots of dragons and damsels.  We also spotted 4 or 5 spring-run chinook - really cool to see these huge wild fish hanging out in crystal clear cold water all summer.
