Patchy fog before 8am. Otherwise, mostly sunny, with a high near 84. Southwest wind 5 to 11 mph.
Still very mild weather for July this morning. Creeks are clear to mildly stained after the heavy rains earlier in the week.
Fishing has been solid subsurface on scuds, pink squirrels and leeches on the stained water, while a hippie stomper or foam hopper are getting the job done on the surface on the clear water (especially when you tie a small bead head as a dropper below!)
Hatches are sparse and most of the surface activity is on terrestrials and attractor flies. However we are still seeing some mayflies and midges hatch especially when the sun is off the water early morning and late in the day.
We are in the summer season, so it is not a bad idea to use your stream thermometer often. Water temperatures over 65 degrees mean poor fishing, and much higher than that can be lethal to a hooked trout.
