Moved from the lower river to the upper river this evening.  With bright sun and air temperatures at almost 70 degrees the midges provided the best dry fly  action today.  A twilight midge cluster with a cdc transitional midge was the ticket as fish fed mostly just below the surface.  Head and tail rises were the norm and on most takes we only saw the leader move.

The nymph fishing in between dry fly spots was steady with pink firebeads and a mix of midge pupa.  Jailbird midges, root beer midges and black beauty emergers took fish as well.
