Nice Bow That Ate The Streamer

The nymph fishing has been very good the past few days both wade fishing and floating.  Fish are still highly concentrated in certain areas.  With the most recent bump getting your flies down is an even bigger priority now.  Effective nymphs have been firebead sowbugs, soft hackle ray charles, black and cream zebras and red larva.

The dry fly fishing has been good to excellent the past few days.  On sunny days the midge hatches have been best early in the morning or late in evening.  Look for baetis on overcast days.  Effective fly patterns have been parachute adams 20 -24, griffith’s gnat, birschell’s hatching midge and the student.

We have streamer fished as well the past few days, and the action has been spotty at best.  If you really commit to them you will pick up some nice fish.
