Its early Spring and Ladin, Steve and Larry start fishing on the Clark Canyon Reservoir with a trip planned on the Pointdexter Slough later in the day. The ice hasn't fully melted on Clark Canyon so they're casting Woolly Buggers to the edge of the ice and stripping back, as this is where they fish will be patrolling. Ladin lands a lovely big Rainbow Trout and then talks us through his preferred set up here. Steve is using a Purple Seal Bugger fly and is next to strike with a lovely 3-4lb fish. Reaching the edge of the ice pack seems critical to success here and as the day warms up, so does the action with both Ladin and Steve landing some more big Rainbows. In part 2 of this episode, the guys fish the Pointdexter Slough, a spring creek that runs into the Beaverhead River in Montana. Ladin starts with a small purple streamer pattern in a nice pool locks onto a nice silvery Brown Trout. Steve is slightly downstream and using a different tactic, drifting a team of nymphs along the bank and also gets off the mark with a nice Brown Trout on his Hot Head Sow Bug.
