With water temps ranging for the high 50's to low 60's fish will be looking to feed. This time of year fish can be in any type of water, so covering all water types is important. ESN is still going to produce the most fish, but fishing with a dry dropper and nymphing with an indicator will be great way to cover deep pools, glides and runs. Dry fly fishing has been great in the evenings with PMD's, Yellow Sallies and caddis hatching. Try a Purple Parachute Adam's of light Elk Hair caddis on a longer leader when fish are rising. Streamer fishing has been really good during low light times. Swinging buggers and other sculpin patterns with some strips has produced some bigger fish.
