July 19th Fishing ReportMostly sunny, with a high near 82. South wind 8 to 10 mph.
Creeks are exceptionally low and clear with temperatures in the high 50s to mid 60s. We do have some creeks with temperatures over 65 and up to the 70s. While the fish are not boiling in these creeks (they hang out near the springs sipping the cool water), fishing for them is potentially fatal and just not responsible. Please use your thermometer.
Overall fishing is difficult due to the low water and high aquatic vegetation growth. Luckily the temperatures have been stable and morning fishing still remains good. Mid day and afternoon are not quite as good unless there is cloud cover. The evening bite is good for a couple hours after the sun goes down below the ridges.
Beetles, ants, smaller hoppers are all good on the surface. Where you can effectively nymph, smaller and thin bodied bugs are good.
