The Fish Report - July 24, 2008





Water Conditions:

The water is pretty clear and holding around 200 cfs. as of 7/17 Water temps are starting to get warm averaging around 60-64 degrees . When the water gets to 70 degrees please respect the fishery and DO NOT FISH HERE.The fish will eat because they have to , but they will not survive even the best release method.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:

Nymph fishing has been good early with indocators, lots of weight and bead headed flies in a size 16-18. The female Trico hatch has been starting about 8:30 am on non windy mornings. The best and most consistent hatch is the evening caddis . A lot of angling pressure has been happening in the top mile of the river, We advise fishing downstream below the bridge . We have heard of some fun fishing at Green Creek lately you might consider fishing there mid day when the air temps are high with some standard "Dry Dropper" rigs. Stimulators with a Prince nymph, or anything similar should work well.

Recommended Flies:

NYMPHS: Cream Caddis Pupa #16, #18-22 Zebra Midge, Tim's Olive PT Cruzer#16-18, Crystal Caddis Larva#18-20, #12 Gummy Stones, #10 San Juan Worm, #16-18 Anatomical PMD, #16 Nori's Caddis Pupa,

DRIES :Goddard Caddis#18-22, Outrigger Caddis Olive#18, Harrops PMD Dun #18, Ostrich Caddis Emerger #22, Becks' Sulfur Emerger #18-20, CDC PMD Emerger, CDC Female Trico Emerger #22-24, CDC Female Trico Dun#20-24, Elk Hair Caddis Tan#14-18, Tan Stimis #12-16, Outrigger Yellow Sally #16

Guides Hint: Look for the deeper pockets of water and concentrate on those for the larger fish. Try to send your flys into the hole BEFORE your indicator to get a better drift, or simply ditch the indicator and watch your leader to detect a grab.
