We have had some great rain storms the last week and looks like more to come. The Cicadas slowed down during the last three evening rains, which has cooled the air temp thru out the days. Even on the last day if the third storm we were getting takes all day. Fish weren’t as active but there was a lot of debris in the water as well. For the first time on Sunday I watched two fish race for our big bug as soon as it hit the water. There has been a lot of talk and different theory’s on how long drys will still take. My hopes are with this weather slowing them down a few weeks that the Cicadas will get back into the groove when it gets hot again. Only the next week our so will tell but I here of rain for the weekend again. I have also thrown nymphing rigs and streamers and the fish are still actively taking fly’s. The river is fishing good just depends on how you like to wet your flys.
I fished the walk in between 2-6pm and we estimated around 30 fish. My client caught alot of fish in the 8-11 inch range and a few over 15 the biggest was a 16 inch female. This time of year for the walk in high water creates many new Kick outs and riffles which is fun and new. We fished a suspended double 16 midge and thru them thru every seam and little draws from 12″-4′ of water and had action the whole time. As the evening or morning begins dry drop close to shore is has been working as well. Small terrestrials or stimulators Orange or yellow has been my choice.
Thanks to Bill for landing those hogs. Owner/Guide Mick Lovett landing that beauty on his new Helios 3 Wieght on a day off.
Thanks and keep your tips high and drys close to shore.
