UPPER COLUMBIA

Swing, dry and nymph tactics have all been successful with some beauties to be caught….. certainly not a numbers game.  Fall in in the air. Lots of great places to be at this time of year.  This is certainly one of them.

The river is at Fall levels now and the Flip Flop is pretty much done.  Water temps remain good, varying from 54-62 degrees depending on time and zone.

Clarity on 9/9/21 just above town at 12 noon.  We should see the river in good shape with the up coming cooling trend:)

 

UPPER COLUMBIA

As per usual, the UC is finicky.  Understandably as it is a BIG body of water.  Swing, dry and nymph tactrics have all been successful with some beauties to be caught….. certainly not a numbers game.
