June 25th Fishing ReportSunny, with a high near 81. Calm wind becoming west around 5 mph in the afternoon.
Creeks are clear to stained. The larger creeks and those below flood control dams still have a heavy stain on them. Temperatures are in the high 50s to low 60s.
Things have calmed down since the rains and fishing is back to 'normal'. The sun will be the limiting factor so make sure you are out there early and late, and find shade mid day. The exception to this is fishing terrestrials. Once the dew dries off the grass it is game on to throw ants and beetles near the banks and overhanging vegetation. Ants have been particularly deadly lately.
Hatches are sparse with a few sulphurs and other lighter colored mayflies still hanging around along with a few egg laying caddis and yellow sallies. Having a few parachutes in light and dark colors will cover the evening hatches.
Subsurface fishing has been great on scuds and purple drank as well as on Food and zebra midges.
