Summer Runs

We are seeing a lot of summer runs enter the rivers now. Both the west side and the east are fishing pretty well, with new fish coming in every morning. We are catching most fish within the first 3 hours of daylight, but a few in the sun still. With the low clear water, the natural patterns are still the best choice. Purple and Red Steelhammers, Bennetts Halo’s, Pool cleaners & Steelhead Spratleys for swinging. Pupatators and Jimmy Legs for the nymph game.


Look before you fish

With the low clear water, make sure you take a good look at the water before you step in, you may find a fish right at your feet. This fish was only in about a foot and a half of water, not in the main current. Good sunglasses are a must this year.
