June 5th Fishing Report

EDIT:  Things are a bit muddier than we expected.  Reports rolling in of heavy stains on many creeks.  Might want to give it until this evening, or hit the headwater creeks in search of fishable water.

Mostly cloudy through mid morning, then gradual clearing, with a high near 82. North wind 6 to 11 mph.
There was a bit of rain last night and into the early morning, but nothing that will muddy the creeks up too heavily.  Instead, it will bring back the light to medium stain that has made fishing quite good the past few days!
 Hatches are much more intense in the mornings and evenings.  Look for a smattering of larger mayflies (carry a couple size 12 parachutes!) as well as sulphurs, caddis, craneflies and a few yellow sallies.  During the entire day you can not beat the driftless special rig of a hippie stomper (orange, yellow, royal) with a bead head dropper (fenchie canadian,).  In the stained water, look for fish to eat squirmy wormies and leeches too.
Creeks are flowing clear to stained with temperatures in the high 50s.  With the recent rains, gnats are out so make sure you have your buggins handy!
