Patterns of the week
PMD Trigger nymph
Pats stones- imagine that
CDC Pheasant tails
The euro nymph game is good just like it was thirty years ago…. it’s just now we don’t use fly lines which makes it easier:). Watch Joe Humphrey get it done with a fly line!
Dry fly fishing has been ok.. and definitely zone specific and overall sporadic. Searching with the dry fly has been slow. Most of the dry fly activity we have seen is to specific fish rising to insects.
Salmon smolt are definitely on the trouts menu:)
Up and down overall but average to good fishing. Smorgasbord of bugs including… Baetis, PMD’s, March Browns and Drakes:)
