Things are back on track although we had boats out even after the blow out. Our guests were here from a long ways away and we made sure they had good fishing.
Grey Reef has several feet of visibility and is fishing well. Caddis, beady leaches, worms, scuds, sunken tricos, crane fly, and PMD emergers still doing it. Dry fly is AM tricos and late PM caddis…both very good! Streamer activity is also productive but not super hot…yet!
Miracle Mile has 3′ of visibility which is pretty darn good for this time of year. It is tanic brown, not mud and very fishable. Beady Leaches, worms, halfbacks, soft hackle caddis, scuds, crawdads etc. Streamers not getting a lot of love.
Fremont is green and that is normal for the season. Same selection of bugs and worth doing it despite the appearance.
Weather has been excellent with evening temps down near 50 and afternoon highs in the low to mid 80s. This keeps the river cool and fish healthy. We will have tricos for the next month or more so plan on fun and challenging dry fly in the AM. Psuedos will be appearing in the next couple weeks and this keeps ’em high in the water column or low in the skinny water. They make for good afternoon dry fly. Streamers will also heat up abruptly and if you like to bring out the mean in them this is the way to do it. It has been an excellent season so far with more fish than we should be privileged to and the average size that rivals any ever at Grey Reef…even the good old days. But, we have several more months to go!
