Fly Fishing Update:
July has kicked off in a beautiful fashion and the weather is finally starting to feel like summer. The river level continues to drop, and as of this report we are at 7,930 CF. The water temperature is just shy of 62°F. The main attraction at the moment, is the caddis hatch on property! Guests have been taking advantage of "boiling" pods of fish on our private 1.4 miles of riverfront. Evenings have been phenomenal, with non-stop action.
Caddis are the main attraction, with PMD spinners still taking fish. Who knows how much longer PMDs will be around, but we are eagerly awaiting the first Trico hatch of the season. During the day, anglers have found success with smaller groups of rising fish, while the evening has been the main event.
Nymphing continues to be hot! Crayfish patterns, Frenchies, Perdigons and caddis nymphs have all been the ticket to bent rods and big smiles. We are entering water flows that are very conducive to short-leasing! Don't be scared to try a dry-dropper rig as well.
Streamer fishing is still slower. There are anglers getting it done, but on smaller patterns and slower retrieves. We eagerly await the fall streamer bite!
Drop us a line and we hope to see you soon!
