This week has been a very warm one, hence lots of power generation. They have been running water everyday for the last 4 days. Generally starting with 1 very early and kicking on 1-2 more by mid morning. We have had a couple of trips out per day everyday. We have been doing really well. We’ve been using some larger dry flies and hooking alot of fish, with the water running. In addition sculpin patterns have been a top producer if your looking for the bigger fish. We have been really catching some nicer brown trout with the water running.
Of course the traditional nymph rigs are a given, using one of our locally tied custom scud patterns, fished alone or behind an attractor like a San Juan Worm, or an imitation egg. You must use split and an appropriate size indicator.
Also top picks have been the Adam’s bug, Wd-40’s, and the prismatic emerger. Farther down stream the favorites have been weight egg patterns and zebra midges.
