Bring your A game……

About a week or so ago…..the switch flipped. It is no longer the cool cloudy time of year. Though, not hot enough to fry an egg……it is hot enough to warm the water and slow the bite. It is early and late, with “challenging fishing” in between. If you start to feel beat up a little, try a tributary…..They are flowing well.

For our bug menu this week, we are serving Lrg Golden stones, Little yellow sallies, a few Lrg Amber sedge, and many little Glossisoma Caddis. Thought I saw a Isonychia….

It is time to include terrestrials on the menu as well……Hoppers, Ants, Beetles, and such.

No need to wear waders unless you like sweating off pounds like wrestler……..light, quick dry pants, and same shirt in drab colors.           A drab hat would keep you stealthy… sandals are nice if your toes are covered. If not, try wading boots and aqua socks…..Lots of folks on the water, and the road….

Water is over 60 deg due to surface release from the lake.                     Treat’em nice, and keep’em wet!
