Open Water Areas Are Holding Some Good Fish

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:

The weeds are really growing in down in the canyon. The fishable areas here are becoming a bit more sparse, but the open water areas are holding some good fish. The Interpretive Site has been fun throughout. The bugs are very tiny here, so going with smaller patterns on top, like size 20 and smaller seem to get better looks than the bigger stuff right now. Nymphing has still been producing well. It has been a mixed technique here, so having a couple of rods with varying setups has been a good call.

Best Flies: Flashback PT’s #16-#20, Tricos Spinners #20-22, SD Crawlers in Red #14, Copper Tiger Midges #18-20, and #18 Assassin Dark.
