While the weather over the weekend was less than ideal the nymph fishing remained red hot. The dry fly fishing was tough except in the calmest of water blocked from the prevailing winds. Heavy rains Friday and Saturday had soap creek running high and off color bringing color into the river about 10 miles down from the dam. Look for this to clear up quickly, if we don’t see anymore rain over the next few days.
Nymph fishing has been most productive in the slow to medium paced runs, with a tan or grey sowbug on top and a midge or blue winged olive nymph pattern below. As the weather stabilizes look for the hatches to become more consistent again and the fish to begin to feed more steadily on top.
