We are back to Dry Fly Only! We are seeing Caddis, Tricos, PMDs, little yellow stones and hoppers throughout the day and the fish are really looking up! The hoppers are really becoming a factor again just like last summer! The Creek has come down and is hovering at around 130 CFS and is very clear for these flows. The fishing has remained really good and there are lots of fat, healthy fish! Bring your boots, it's still a little wet out there.
There is a great Mayfly hatch between 11:00 and 1 and the fish get on them pretty good. It is an Infrequin, size 14 and they are taking most PMD patterns. There is a decent Caddis deal in the morning and evenings on the calm water and in the riffles. Tricos start around 9 and the Sallies can be found mid to late morning. Hoppers are the deal in the afternoon, espesially if the wind comes up. We are having a great season and are very happy to see how many fish are in the creek this year!!
See you soon, Kevin and Lisa
