September 3rd Fishing ReportPartly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny, with a steady temperature around 67. Breezy, with a northwest wind 13 to 23 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph.
Great terrestrial day with the winds!
Creeks are clear and flowing a touch low. The recent rains did nothing to muddy things up and everything remains fishable. THe morning tricos have been underwhelming. You may see a few here and there. Watch for some olives hatching in the afternoon and evening alongside the midges. With cooler weather on the horizon the afternoons will start to give us more rising fish.
The main menu item for trout however is still terrestrials. Small hoppers, ants, beetles, etc on the surface are quite a bit of fun right now! Add to that some fantastic subsurface fishing and we have a good reason to skip a couple of days of work or extend your labor day holiday.
Subsurface fishing has been great lately. With the cooler water temps the fish are eating pretty much anything (mid day sun they still prefer the smaller, thin bodied nymphs) from pink squirrels to zebras to scuds.
