Fishing has pick up and we are seeing some nice fish being caught.This time of year fish key in on midges as the bait fish have gone deep in search of better water. You'll find fish cruising the shore line looking and feeding on any midge they can find. Fishing with midges on floating lines with or without indicators has been the best way to fish. Make sure to change color of fly and the depth often if you're not finding success. Stripping beetles and buggers is also going to be good, remember to use that fast sinking line. Some fish will still be willing to chase a fly.
