July 14th Fishing ReportA 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 3pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 85. West wind 5 to 10 mph. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
This weekend will finally be a BIT of a relief from the hot and dry weather. We have had an inch or two in the last 36 hours here. While that is not enough to change the creeks too much (some slightly stained this morning) the fish are in a far better mood in the mornings. Fishing is still slower after mid day until the last two hours of the evening.
The weekend weather is looking pleasant with lows in the mid 50s to 60 and highs in the low to mid 80s.
Tricos are sparse, but they are around on a few creeks in the mornings. Beetles and ants have been fantastic lately on the surface, and the parachute adams hatch is on in full force (have a few 14 and 18s)
Subsurface fishing is still difficult due to the weed growth this year (no rain to flush weeds, they are good for the creeks, but make fishing tough) but purdygons and crooked PTs as well as zebra midges are doing well.
