Putah Creek fish still on the bite

I fished with David from Dallas, TX on July 31st who was in town for a wedding and only had a half day free to chase fish, so we went to Putah to maximize his time on the water. david was a good fisherman, and after he got back into the rythm of fly casting, he began hooking fish. We found the fish in the fast water and had best success tight line nymphing with flashback pheasant tails in sz 16 and a LOT of weight, as many as 6 BB size shot at times. Daviud managed to let all the big fish go early in the fight, but still landed several nice rainbows. He grudgingly had to leave for the wedding, but with a smile on his face and some good CA memories.
