Mostly cloudy through mid morning, then gradual clearing, with a high near 82. Light west wind becoming northwest 8 to 13 mph in the morning.
Wow, a perfect sting of summer weather the next few days. Highs in the high 70s and nighttime temps around 60,
The heat yesterday was wiped out thanks to a couple rain showers. The rains here were not enough to blow things out and creeks remain clear to stained with water temperatures right around 60. The few creeks that are stained will clear up quickly as the storms hit early evening yesterday.
Fish have been feeding on the surface, even in some cases mid day, on a mix of bugs including caddis, tiny mayflies, midges and craneflies. The major surface action has been on terrestrials. Small hoppers, beetles and ants (floating and sunken) have been the main course for a while now.
Fishing a dry/dropper with a foam pattern on top and a brush hog or pink belly pheasant tail has been excellent.
Subsurface bugs have been best with a tungsten head and typically thin bodied. Fish them in the shin to thigh deep runs as well as underneath undercut banks.
At night mousing has been a ton of fun, and some big fish have been caught fishing larger streamer and leech patterns.
