Fishing has slowed up a bit the last few days. There has been a lot of fishing pressure, the crowds have been unbelievable. They should start thinning out today.
We did land quite a few very nice size fish on our guide trips, 20″ - 25″. The water is seeming warmer than normal, I think Table Rock Lake is turning over, which can really drop the oxygen levels.
You are having to size down on everything. Small flies (20 to 22) and 7X fluorocarbon tippet, and some have even been using 8x, to get more bites.
Fly Box picks
possum scud in sizes 22-18
san juan worms: red or brown
WD-40 midges 20-22 black or gray
