Hey you fishers!!!
Hope you are getting after them…..
Flows are nice for the moment, at 300cfs in town, 600 down below. (And cooler too.)
Temps are still OK but slowly coming up.
Mid-day can be a challenge, flinging a hopper is the best bet.
Some surface activity about 9:00 am for an hr.
At twilight they may go again.
A mix of Caddis and little Yellow Sallies.
The fish are shopping hard, but have to eat.
Choose a good bug and get an excellent drift.
Mud your leader religiously if there is sun out.
Going to lighter tippet during the day, but increasing strength as we go into dusk.
Bigger fish come out to play and with warmer end of day water you don’t want to just follow them around.
Always play them as quickly as possible to prevent over-stressing our beautiful fish.
They have been leaving the flows steady, but it can change in a heart beat, so check the flows before you go.
Focus on fishing bubbles, and places the others don’t…….
Bring a head light for extra innings!
