07/21/09 Fishing Report

07/21/09 Circadas are still singing away along the banks of the cool clear waters at Lee’s Ferry. The eddies are full of hungery trout sipping midges and taking emergers, so stop when you get to one and put on a dropper. Nymphing deep with a worm and a zebra midge worked well this week . You can drift from a boat or wade the lower ends of the riffles. Again the over looked factor of the month is wading the long cobble bars and casting upsteam with a dry and a dropper. Don’t forget one of my favorites is fishing the deep seams with a 200 grain sink tip and a olive wooly bugger. You folks that have trolling motors can hold on the seams longer and deeper. Make sure you are fishing as close to the bottom as possible. Have fun and be safe I hope to see you on the river. Rocky
