Fished a stretch above Holter Dam at Land of Giants Friday and had fun. Took a 12'3" proto I developed and just rolled and the 270-grain skandi line worked great as did a 270-grain skagit. Fishing was ok, not as good as years past. But there were some bruiser Kokanee this year. Rainbow trout averaged 20" and two went 24." Saw several of the monster browns (trust me, you wouldn't believe the size) breach but in ten years have yet to hook/catch one. You won't find them that size on the Craig stretch, but you will find easy access and willing trout of 16-18." That olive fly with an 18" dropper nymph or soft hackle will work. Talk to Jerry at The Trout Shop in Craig if the fishing's tough going.
BTW, I built the rod, one of several iterations, to be the ultimate Montana trout spey and I wasn't disappointed. Going to start commercial production soon.
