August 18th Fishing Report

Sunny, with a high near 76. Calm wind becoming north around 6 mph in the morning.
 Creeks are a bit low and running clear with temperatures in the low 60s.  Only the West Fork and Bad Axe creeks are running over 65 degrees.  Use your thermometer and don't bother with anything over 65 degrees.  Not only will the fishing stink, but you risk stressing fish.
 There are some olives hatching in the evenings getting fish to rise the last few hours of the day, and the trico spinner fall is still very sparse in the mornings.  It is summertime so terrestrials are the hot ticket!  Running a smaller hippie stomper or chubby chernobyl with a dropper below will get you fish all day long.  Make sure you are casting to overhanging vegetation and shady areas!
