August 8th Fishing ReportA 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 7am. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 73. Northwest wind 7 to 11 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph.
WIth another inch of rain falling yesterday many of our creeks are heavily stained to murky. There is fishable water out there though, Check the tributaries and headwaters.
Things are dropping and clearing well, and we are looking at a nice weather week ahead. Wednesday will be the warmest at 84 degrees, while every other day is in the mid to high 70s. It is the prime terrestrial season with hoppers, ants, and beetles leading the way (tie a dropper on below for even more success!). Tricos are still around but not in crazy numbers first thing in the mornings, and in the evening fish are rising to a mix of egg laying caddis and some midges and lighter colored mayflies.
