Summer In The PNW

Summer has arrived in the Pacific Northwest and there is no shortage of fishing opportunities. Summer steelhead are in all of our local streams, while some are fishing better than others, there are good numbers fish around. The Clackamas has been one of the better rivers, as well as some streams in SW Washington. While dry lines can get some grabs, we’re still fishing skagit and sink tips for the best results.

On the trout side of life, the name of the game as we move through June and into July is Caddis. Spent adults in the early mornings, larva and pupas in mid-day and emergers in the evenings. All the Silvey patterns are solid flies for any river as well as Elk Hairs, and X-Caddis. Smaller stones in the heads of riffles will be good as the water warms up. Stick to size 8’s and 10’s, and Yellow Sally’s will be an improtant bug this month in 14’s and 16’s.
