August 4th 2010

Fishing has been great and continues to be. Try chironomids, damsels and callibaetis.

The channels are producing big rainbows. Chironomids, damsels and streamers are all catching fish. 
Rufus patterns are working  very well. Be patient & enjoy the view.

The water level has been low & warm and the fishing has slowed down a bit. Target  the big trout in deep pools, under banks, near springs and inlets to the reservoirs. Cased caddis, caddis pupae, mega princes are productive nymphs. PMD's, and caddis are hatching.

Lots of beautiful rainbows and some large browns are being landed. 
Rust pine squirrel streamers, Lady Di's are always a good bet.

Lots of trout, a few whitefish.  PMD's are hatching strongly, some BWO's and some caddis.
Also try scuds, zebra midges, frenchies, and exploding baetis.
