The water at Roaring river is low for this time of year it is making for some very good flyfishing it has been a little tough on the bait fisherman, I am still catching a lot of trout on Adams, Beatles ants small grasshoppers crackle backs and blue wing olives. We are still catching a lot of trout on zebra midges pheasant tails, hares ears, and sow bugs.

I recommend that you use 7X tippet on your flyrod right now if you were throwing larger flies you can sometimes get away with 6X.

A lot of mornings I start with a black woolly bugger and I usually do pretty well getting five or six fish in a half hour or so.

If you are using power bait eggs, The best colors have been white, orange, and fluorescent yellow. If you are using power bait worms the colors have been cheese yellow, orange, and white. If you are spin fishing you are much better off right now using 2 pound non-fluorescent fishing line moss green or fluorocarbon is the best. If you like using the lucky lady trout worms then pink and white,cheese yellow, white and orange have all been good colors.

Good luck on the river
