June 29th Fishing ReportShowers and thunderstorms likely, mainly before 2pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 86. South wind 8 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch.
Creeks are clear to slightly stained area wide with only a couple still showing a medium stain. Looks like scattered drizzle through the day which will not do any harm to the creeks, and the cloud cover will only benefit anglers!
Thing are getting back on track after some up and down weather the past few days. While hatches are still sparse and unimpressive, fish are rising in the evening to simple parachutes and emergers.
The terrestrial bite is starting to really heat up as ants and beetles as well as hippie stompers starting to be eaten very well by trout. Even for rising fish, tossing a beetle or ant will get them to feed it seems.
Subsurface fishing has been solid on a mix of bugs including scuds, midge larvae, brush hogs, and hot spot purple PT jigs. Fish a thick pattern then switch to a thin bodied pattern and the fish will let you know what they want!
Post rains, in the stained water, leeches and streamers are great!
Mousing is starting to get good too, especially as the grass dries out a bit.
