In a word…..HOT. I think I am beginning to sound like a broken record, but it doesn’t change the fact that the forecast are for tempertures to remain in the upper 90s to low 100s for the next seven days. And, there is nothing that looks like rain in the forecast!
We continue to see wading water in the mornings. The generators have been coming on sometime around noon or after and staying on most of the rest of the day; sometimes going off late.
Stan’s guys he had out for three days in this heat, had a good time and caught lots of fish on the P&P and ruby midges and stripping the holographic green crackleback.
Gina out Wednesday with Dale, from Oklahoma, and his friend, Howard from Montana. they had a great day on a tiger tail (we’re making up names again!) the P&P midge, a crackleback and the floozie.
Thursday, Gina took Barb out to celebrate her birthday. She decided her present to herself would be a guided fly fishing trip.
She had a great time and the trout even helped out. Best patterns were the tiger tail and a rusty midge.
Talked to several folks fishing today and they are saying it is pretty tough. From what we have been seeing, stripping something, especially small olive buggers, dead drifting the filoplume, or slow pulling the 56er have been working pretty good. Early in the mornings, you might do well with a yellow, orange, or olive soft hackle if the fish are dimpling the water.
