Less rain…

Actually, it stopped!                                                                                                                            Glorious blue sky yesterday, and high thin clouds today.                                                          Air temp nearing 50s, water clearing quickly, green/tan about 36-37 deg.                      Water lapping at the top of banks. It has dropped about 7-8″.                                                       Bugs will like this warmth, and fish be used to seeing more food suspended.                          Be careful pulling off-road very far, it’s very muddy………                                                              Midges were out during the high flow melt, and are out now…..                                         Chilly water means you have to hit them on the nose.                                                                Soft takes means light weight is advised. Fish the soft/slow stretches.                               They have been eating Skwalla nymphs, micro Mays, and the ubiquitous midge…..                Think small….
Hope you are getting out.
