Summers here….

It has been wonderfully cool, and fishy in spite of the bigger flows.
I know, I know…’ve heard it before….
They can’t quit eating or leave the river!
It’s true….
We’ve been touching fin fairly often.
They like the temps, and more water means they can move around more……
Temp varies with the time of day and location….bring a thermometer, and find slightly warmer water. Ranges from 50 down to 46….
Color is good and getting better. Green with 1-2 ft of vis.

Saw some large stones this could fish with a barge fly and a dropper in the eddies.

Green Drakes are popin’
PMDs have started as well…….
A Mahogany Dun or two, too…
and finally…a hopper. Definitely summer time!
Glossisoma Caddis and a few larger ones….
Flying Ants are done down low, but are around if you hike up to a back-country lake.
You can drown one all summer in several colors…red, black, and red and black….
Some Termites aflyin”…
The tribs a still pretty high….but I have heard some stories of fish to be had…
Lakes around here are producing Trout and Bass depending on water chosen.
Callibaetis, and Midges…

Difficult to share just how nice it is here right now.
Maybe you should come and see…..
