September 21st Fishing reportPartly sunny, with a high near 67. Northwest wind 13 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.
What a difference a day makes. From 90 and sunny to cool and comfortable. The first day of a cold front can be tricky for fishing. Your best bet is to fish subsurface below the riffles (we will still use a foam pattern as an edible indicator). Sometimes the unstable weather change can put the fish in a funk, BUT the next few days will have them more relaxed and happy.
We're on the lookout for the late summer/fall olive hatch with this cooler weather. Especially if we get some clouds we should see the olives show up again. A klinkhammer or film star will do the trick, or our favorite emerger the pearl butt secret.
Terrestrials will still fish effectively through the day, and guides have been grabbing small leeches for the early part of the day before the fish 'wake up' to terrestrials.
Creeks are in great shape, clear and a touch low with very good temperatures that will only get better with the cool weather the rest of the week.
