A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms before 10am, then scattered showers and thunderstorms after 2pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 79. Southeast wind 5 to 9 mph becoming southwest in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 40%
Cloudy and warmer today. The warm weather might be a bit uncomfortable after the past few chilly weeks, but the cloud cover will do wonders for the fishing. Creeks are still in great shape with good flows and colder temperatures than normal for late summer.
Look for trico spinner falls in the morning. Fish will be rising until about 9 or 10. After that, fishing smaller terrestrials and foam patterns is working well, especially with a bead head nymph dropped below. In the last couple hours of the day, we are seeing fish rising to a mix of mayflies and midges. A small parachute pattern will work well.
Subsurface fishing has been the most consistent. Make sure your patterns are heavy and get down right away. Early and late, fish are feeding in shin to thigh deep water. Mid day, many of them will retreat to the deep pools.
Do not overlook fishing mouse patterns at night. It has been a good mousing year!
