May 30th Fishing Report
Sunny, with a high near 65. Northwest wind 6 to 13 mph.
Creeks will range from crystal clear to muddy area wide. If you aren't happy with the clarity drive upstream bit for clearer water, and downstream a bit for stained water. Water temps are in the mid 50s.
On the stained water, leeches, scuds, and squirmy wormies are working well. On the clear stuff, smaller, thin bodied bead heads under a foam terrestrial.
Practice good social distancing on the water. The Centers for Disease Controlrecommends staying six feet apart from others. We’re taking it a step farther — we’re asking anglers to stay a rod’s length apart from their fishing partners whenever possible. The standard fly rod is nine feet long.
Wear a multi-layered face covering when in the vicinity of other anglers. Even a double-layered cloth mask can help slow the spread of the virus.
Avoid fishing from a boat with someone you haven’t been in lock-down with. In other words, if they’re not family, don’t fish from a boat with them — it’s just not possible to practice social distancing while in a drift boat.
Drive to the river separately to get to the angling destination.
Stay local, if at all possible, to limit exposure to others, and limit others’ exposure to you.
