It's on and should stay on!!


Hi Folks,
Finally the last 2 plus weeks the fishing is on .... nymphs but especially streamers. Bugs are hatching but the water is a bit too high for the dry fly lines to open up.
Streamers: try all colors you have, day to day the fishes preferences will change.
Predictions ..... hoppers are a bit behind .... cold weather ... but they are still out there in big numbers ... look to end of next week or mid August for these bugs to start hitting the water in earnest!
Be careful if floating the river on your own. I floated the lower section a couple of days last week and there's one sunk Hyde drift boat in the middle of the river and a cracked up raft in a log jam. The river is still big, with big new sand bars that make the entry chutes into runs... smaller with a quicker current and little room to maneuver ..... especially watch the bridge across from Hacks in town ... the current is quick and pushes you hard into the bridge abutments ...... had a close call there myself! ..... ahhhh but years of drinking good whiskey and the reflexes of a young cat saw me though!
As always for up to the minute reports give a call ... in the evening ...... I'm on the river otherwise!
Cheers,
Mitch
