On The Drop


We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable labor day weekend!  Based on our sources we have been told Grey Reef will start dropping this week, it may even start today.  Fortunately it looks like we will be out of this blistering heat wave by weeks end as well.  Our guide staff has been diligent about taking water temperatures and we have chosen to go-to early starts and early offs until the cool weather shows up this weekend.  This mornings forecast shows highs in the 50s with lows in the 30s on Saturday.  That’s gonna feel good!

With the anticipated drop in flows we are expecting a pretty strong uptick in trico/pseudo activity and the fish feeding on them.  So you’ll definitely want to keep the dry fly rod handy.  Currently our guides are looking for heads in the morning then switching over to nymphs later on.  4-6ft, 1-3 BBs tethered to a leech, cranefly, Pat’s rubber legs and dropped with a small pheasant tail or foam wing RS2.  A pretty straight forward rig!
