June 1st Fishing Report
A 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before noon. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 79. Breezy, with a south wind 11 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 32 mph. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
Looks like the weather is blowing in some summer temperatures over the next few days. And, our fishing has become a bit like summer fishing. Meaning we are concentrating on fishing early, and late, and avoiding the bright mid day sun.
Creeks are clear and flowing in the mid to high 50s. Tan caddis are still round, but in fairly small numbers. If you see a splashy rise now it is more likely a cranefly eat than a caddis. In the evenings, we are getting sulphurs, pmds, and cahills. Mayflies in orange, green-ish, and white.
During the day, it is hippie stomper season! Tossing a big, visible foam fly as an indicator and dropping a bead head below is great. If there are clouds in the sky or a stain on the water, fish larger, thicker bodied patterns. The more clear the sky/water is, fish thin bodied patterns.
Guiding is back! We have finally put into place the last pieces to ensure that you, and our guides are safe while still being able to provide a great guided trip. Please call us for details.
We are finishing up the plans to re-open the shop to a limited amount of customers soon. Look for 're-opening' later this week!
