Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly between 4pm and 5pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 80. Calm wind becoming west around 5 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
While on the calendar the dog days of summer are on us, the rainy July coupled with a week of temperatures reaching only 80 degrees (only predicted to hit 70 as a high later this week!!!) and some clouds later on this week will continue the excellent trout summer we have had so far!
Creeks are clear to mildly stained and flowing at good temperatures across the board. The mid day sun is still the limiting factor. Trout just are not happy when the sun is directly overhead. You are far better off fishing early (chasing the trico spinner fall) and late (midges and mice!) and avoiding the mid day sun.
Tricos on the surface in the morning, terrestrials mid day, then midges and mice in the evenings. Subsurface fishing has been best on smaller, thin bodied flies sub surface and on leeches, scuds and even San Juan Worms subsurface.
