Wind River Rainbow Orgy
It's a wild orgy up on the Wind River these days; the rainbows are spawning. When I arrived there were two guys throwing egg patterns to the spawners on the beds. They eventually got bored shooting fish in a barrel and left as I was getting geared up. I won't fish to the spawners on their beds and so I drifted midge patterns through the deeper runs. This one, the only fish I caught in three hours, took a size 20 WD40.
