They are still in there…….

Getting a little harder to meet a fish……but still turning both browns (in softer water) and Bows (in bubbles).
Many rods have been waving over the river. Fish are hip to our trip…….
The flows have come down to Summer flows, at about 220cfs in town.62deg and rising. The canyon is about 500cfs, and nice.
Very clear and pleasant temp for humans…which means lots of floaters on the water mid-day.
I say, go early and late for a more enjoyable experience.
Definitely bring your sneak skills, and get a good drift!!!
Golden stones are happening…moving to the stretch along hwy 89 towards Tahoe city.
Little yellow sallies are still going for it. Some nights there are a bunch going off.       Think dry fly. Glossisoma Caddis, and a few larger ones in the evening. Swing it for the added value fish.
Midges too…….
Still using the switch rod, but a short stick will work almost as well..
I’d say get after it soon!
