Fishing has been great, the rains have left us unscathed and the
the river remains normal and clear.
I have been catching a lot of trout on cracklebacks, adams, beetles,
ants, hoppers and caddis. I fished an hour or so yesterday and landed
18 in the middle of the day, I close at 2 on Sundays just so I can go
fishing if I want.
I'm using 6X or 7X tippet most of the time, my leaders will be 9'
right now.
Still catching plenty of trout on nymphs, pheasant tails, copper johns,
black, brown and gray zebra midges are good, sow bugs, burlaps, hares
ears and small prince nymphs are working very well right now.
I'm fishing most of my nymphs at about 3' right now, but in a few places
you'll need to fish only about 18".
Glo balls, san juan worms, black, brown, olive and tan buggers and leeches
work well most of the day, and we are still doing quite well on the baby buggers
in the same colors.
Plastic egg and worms are still catching lots of fish, orange, orange/white, cheese,
white, and flo. yellow have all been good colors.
Spinners are still working in the mornings(30 minute wonders) black, brown, white,
olive and the skunk have all been working well.
Jig fisherman are really doing well right now, the water is great for sight fishing and
the jig fisherman are catching trout on olive, black, brown, white and tan Roaring River
specials. If you are using Micro Jigs, tan, olive and black/yellow have been the best
Good luck on the river this week, fishing is great right now.
