A fine time!


If you wondered if it was time to go fish, I’d have to say yes!
The upper river is perfect, and camp grounds are still little used…
Bait guys fish this section, but stay near pull-offs mostly….
Walk a bit for best results. Be sneaky.
Mid-river near town is clear/green and near 50 deg.
Flows are dropping an inch or so every day.
Picking up the occasional fish on dries, mostly with BWOs.sz18-20.
Seeing swirls on streamers near the bank for browns.
The Ants will fly this week with the warm temps. Bigger flows down in the canyon, but very fishy too.
Finding a wide range of food forms in my bug seine…..
Golden Stones, Little Yellow Sallies, BWOs, Mahogany Dunns, Free range Caddis, and many Midges…
Don’t wait too late this Summer, it will get to low/warmer flows soon enough……..
