June 23rd Fishing ReportA 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Patchy fog before 9am. Otherwise, partly sunny, with a high near 73. Northwest wind 5 to 10 mph.
While not crystal clear, there is far more fishable water out there this morning than we expected! Look for slightly stained to moderately stained area wide this morning with only the larger creeks and those below flood control dams to remain muddy.
With the stain on the water fishing a hippie stomper or training wheel with a larger scud or thicker bodied pattern below is very effective.
Guide trips have been doing very well on the surface on ants and beetles throughout the day. Hatches have not been impressive the past few days (even before the rains) but having a few parachutes or klinkhammers for the evening is never a bad idea.
When all else fails, throw a black leech!
