May 18th Fishing ReportA 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 5pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 74. South wind 9 to 14 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph.
Creeks are low and clear with temperatures in the mid to high 50s.
The haze from the fires out west is keeping things a bit overcast (as will the weather rolling in). Right now the fishing is being held back by the sunny weather, so we will take any break we can!
Caddis are in full swing, fish are eating mostly lighter colored bugs, but a few will still be selective on darker body colors. If you are seeing caddis rises and not seeing any bugs they are eating craneflies! Skittering or twitching a cranefly right now can be deadly on the surface.
During the day when fish are not rising, beetles with a dropper have been great. The smaller terrestrials have been producing, and subsurface fishing in the riffles and just below has been fantastic!
