August 3rd Fishing Report

Mostly sunny, with a high near 70. North wind 7 to 11 mph.
 Incredible summer cool down the next few days, get out there and take advantage of the cooler weather.
Creeks are clear to stained with temperatures in the mid 50s to low 60s.  There are still a few larger creeks that are running over 65.  Avoid those as fishing will be poor and can be stressful to trout.
 While hatches are slim, and the terrestrial bite streaky, fish are still coming up to smash hoppers, ants and beetles.  Your best fishing is using larger foam terrestrials with a bead head a couple of feet below.  Most of your fish will eat the bead head nymph, but a few will munch the foam fly.
 Mousing has been good in the evenings, as has pulling larger streamers and leeches.
 Fishing is still best when the sun is off the water, so fish early and late and find the shaded areas to find happier trout!
