Quick river report today.
So the lower river is back in shape and the mornings are fishing especially well. Big fish on big dries. Nymphing is also good, and streamer fishing continues to be really fun.
The upper end is high at 3400 cfs, but the fish are willing to eat you just have to fish it at the right time of day. The mornings are fishing much better. With the late evenings being decent. Mid day on the upper is a no go when it is sunny.
The water temps are cold, the flows have settled back down. The upper literally just came into shape this morning. I fished it yesterday and it was slow but still running high. It has settled over the evening and looks really good. I’ll be out on it again this weekend.
Summer Stones are on the move, they will be hatching en mass soon. They are already popping in the upper early. Saw fresh shucks yesterday. Grasshoppers aren’t far behind. Drakes are in the upper still, and some goldens flopping around.
I’ve got a few openings still left in July and August is filling up quick. Give me a call or send me an email. Half day floats are perfect this time of year. Pick a morning or an evening and get on the calendar!
