Summer 2008 Fly Fish'n Conditions

Way good. Fish'N conditions are great down here and the wild trout are making up for lost time. Plenty of stockers around the campgrounds if you do not want to hike. Get down the trail a half hour and you will have some water to yourself. Dry/dry or dry dropper bead head nymphs like olive zebras and PT's combos. Stick to #12-16 here, there is no need to go smaller. The pocket water and riffles are best fished casting upstream. If you attempt a conventional position standing across from your water you may spook the fish out of their holds.

Sotcher is also fishing well from the reports I get from tubers. Loebergs, Vanderleeches, Agent Oranges, and damsel fly nymphs #10-12. Bring your tube along and they will allow you to drive in with your own vehicle.
