Nearer the end…….

Summer is starting to fade…….nights are getting cooler. This evening it will drop to 37 deg.
Soon we will get near freezing at night, and a few clouds, then it will be GAME ON again.
Days are still around 80+deg. Grass is starting to go golden, and there is a slight case of smoke on the water in the morning……
Harsh nuclear blue skies during the day (I think hey are beautiful, but fish don’t).
Water temp at dawn is a warmish 63-64… evening it is closing on 68.
About time to ease up on the fish at dusk. Strike early to be nice.
Midges are the mainstay….bunches of them early.
We are seeing some BWOs that are tiny.
A few PMDs and PEDs sporadically.
Caddis both little Glossasoma and some medium sz as well. Swing it!
Crays are molting.
The crowd has thinned!!! So it’s time to roll out!
Still seeing a few Golden stones and little yellow sallies are about gone….
Short wing stones are about due…..
October Caddis have began pupating already, so they will be here in about a month….a little early perhaps.
This is your tie or buy warning.
Water is too warm for swinging streamers right now, but start tying them……
Hope you folks enjoyed your summer, because it’s about over.
Flows will drop out of Tahoe soon, that will reduce the water temps lower in the canyon finally. The lake releases are tepid temps at best.
Fish the bubbles.
