Steady, high flows. Who can believe that we are actually in mid-June? And yesterday, it produced some absolutely epic streamer fishing, even in the bright sun! With a big flush of Alewives flowing through the system, the fish definitely took advantage. The good news is that we had dry fly activity as well, but only right towards dark – not exactly surprising with the bright sunshine we had throughout the day. Today, we’ve got scattered clouds and the occasional thunderstorm on the horizon, so we could see bugs during those breaks from the sun. The fish are there, and even though we remain high, they are eager to feed!
