The river is beginning to drop a little

The Fly Shop

Report Date:

The river is beginning to drop a little and the annual grass die off is progressing with the hot weather. Access under the bridges can be problematic as it is piling up on the Island Road bridge. The good news is you can find fish below and there are some good Callibaetis hatches going on downstream. Fish are still found up in Zug Bug too. Water Boatmen are good to throw when no hatches are bringing the fish up top. Theo's Boatman or an Amber Bubbleback Caddis work very well when swung and stripped. Otherwise, nymphs like the Sweet Pea, olive and brown S&Ms #16 & 18, Olive Hotspot in #18, and the Red Headed Stepchild and RK Sin City in #18 continue to be super effective. Caddis in the evening will cap your day with some solid topwater action.

Hot Flies:  TB Drowned Rusty Spinner, PMD's, Norman's Wiggletails, Pheasant Tails, Mercer's Missing Link, Zug Bugs, and Leeches.
