Water is still low and clear, great dry fly fishing right now, we are getting
lots of trout on caddis, adams, and lt. cahills in the evening, still tearing
the trout up on beetles, ants, hoppers, and cracklebacks most of the afternoon.
Still good nymphing if you want to go that route, pheasant tails, copper johns,
burlaps, sow bugs, small brassies, zebra midges and hares ears are all taking
trout right now.

9' 7X leaders are the best thing to use right now, WATER IS CLEAR,
glo-balls, san juan worms, chamois worms and mega worms will work most of the
day also, if you are so inclined to fish them, they work great.
Woolybuggers are a good choice all day long, they will catch anything and will
catch trout about anytime, good colors are, black, brown, olive, and tan.
Spinners are still good, 30 minute wonders, black, skunk, olive and brown have
been the best producers.

Marabou jigs are still working great, white, cream and tan in the mornings, black, black/yellow, olive, dk brown and lt brown have all been pretty good thru the day.
2lb line is the line to use now, 3 is not horrible but it isn't great either. Use 2lb if you can
Maxima, p-line, mean green and fluorocarbon line is best right now.

If you fishing plastic baits, cheese yellow, pink, orange, and white have all been good colors
the past few weeks, as long as the water stays low and clear, those will be good colors for
awhile, good luck on the river this week.
