September 12th Fishing ReportShowers and possibly a thunderstorm before noon, then a chance of showers between noon and 3pm. Patchy fog before 11am. High near 67. Calm wind becoming west 5 to 8 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
The ground is finally saturated and the rains last night have some creeks running muddy early this morning, but already starting to clear up as of 8 this morning. It might take a little more drive time in the am to find good water, but most creeks will be in good shape later in the morning and into the afternoon.
Fishing has been great overall, with the cold weather and clouds (both in the water and in the sky) putting the fish in a great mood. Olives are hatching, fish are also eating caddis and even hoppers and foam on the surface! Subsurface fishing has been across the board with smaller, thin bodied bugs working as well as scuds and pink squirrels, as well as leeches and streamers. If you are not getting any eats, keep changing the profile and size of your bug until the fish let you know what they want!
In the murky water this morning, streamers, leeches and worm patterns are key!
