Patchy fog before 10am. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a high near 76. Calm wind becoming north 5 to 7 mph in the morning.
Perfect summer conditions today!
Rains yesterday missed us for the most part leaving creeks clear to slightly stained with only one or two exceptions. Water temperatures are in the mid 50s to mid 60s area wide. It is starting to get to the point that carrying a thermometer is a good idea again as a couple of the larger creeks are hitting the mid 60s water temperature wise. Over 65 and fishing slows down quite a bit and can be stressful on fish.
Overall though the fish are very happy eating a mixture of mayflies, craneflies and caddis early and late on the surface while starting to aggressively eat ants beetles and hoppers all day long.
Subsurface fishing on the cloudy days has been excellent with leeches and scuds. On clear days in clear water we are doing well with soft hackles, midge larvae, and thinner profiled flies (pink belly PT, perdigon etc). As is the case each summer brush hogs are a go to subsurface fly. Don't hit the creeks without a few in your fly box!
