Comments:  The trout in the back end of Church Pool sipped small adult caddis this morning, while I as an observer met two nice Gents who were catching trout.  It was a blast talking with them and watching them take the “Ignore It” approach to the high water. This seems to be the approach that I most often employ.
The trout were rising along the edge or seam where the turbulent meets the slack water.  There were trout rising in this slower water all morning as they gently picked off the adult Caddis.  This was encouraging to watch but do not be fooled, with exception to a few slow pockets most of the river is un-navigable, and only fishable along the banks.  Many trout have been seen and caught along the very edges of the river, fishing the water directly in front of you first is a good rule of thumb.
