The wind was unkind yesterday but at least it was blowing down stream for most of us. We are finding more fish rising each day but the majority of the fish landed are still coming on nymphs and streamers. We are seeing stoneflies, little black caddis, and just a few upright wings on the water. Dry fly fishing should improve over the next week with the warmer water temperatures. Our air temps will cool off down to the low 60’s and mid 50’s over the next few days with some rain moving in- which is awesome for the reservoirs. That should happen overnight so we should stay dry today with mid 60’s air temps, light winds, and moderate gusts.
The West Branch under the 191 Bridge is starting off at 47 degrees this morning and peaked around 54 degrees yesterday afternoon.
Little Black Caddis #18 – 20 – Dark Chimarra sp.
Little Black Stoneflies #14 – 18 – Capnidae sp. and Taeniopteryx sp.
