Fly Fishing Update:
We will see temperatures return to the upper 70°F range this week, which is a welcomed break from the heat! Trips are leaving earlier to find consistent hatches and to minimize stress on the fish. Flows are at 4'840 CFS and the water temperature is currently around 64°F. Bump up your tippet and fight fish efficiently! MRR guests have had great success fishing hoppers from our banks this week.
Tricos and caddis are still taking fish, with terrestrials taking over! The dry fly fishing is still excellent in the early morning and at last light. While nymphing will bring more fish to hand, this is an excellent time of year to watch incredible eats on terrestrials fished close to the banks.
Nymphing is excellent in the late mornings as well as early afternoons. Frenchies, zebra midges, sunken spinners, weight flies and zirdles have continued to take fish riverwide. The bite tends to slow down in the mid-afternoon, which perfectly coincides with happy hour at the ranch!
Streamer fishing reports will remain quiet until cooler temperatures return!
Drop us a line and we hope to see you soon!
