July 3rd Fishing ReportA 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Sunny, with a high near 88. North wind 3 to 6 mph.
Creeks are clear to slightly stained. Water temps are at 60 and starting to creek higher with this weather. Remember anything over 65 will be poor fishing and can be harmful to trout. Seek out smaller headwaters and shady areas, the fishing will be much better there.
Fish early and fish late, avoid the mid day sun!
Hatches are still fairly sparse, but the terrestrials are making up for it on the surface! We're fishing hippie stomper and dropper on the surface through the day. Mornings and evenings if they aren't hitting parachutes or crystal wulffs (PMD and adams) we will toss an ant out there (size 16/18).
Mousing is heating up! Fishing mice on the surface at night in the summer can be an absolute blast!
