All is well on the Little Red.  The river remains clear with about 4 hours of generation in the afternoon starting about 2:00 to 3:00 pm.  As long as this continues the fishing should continue to be good.  Water temps continue to be good and the fish are strong and active. 

The clear water requires lighter tippet and smaller flies.  6x tippet is a good choice on the upper stretches of the river with size 18 and 20 flies.  Small nymphs, soft hackles and midge pupas seem to be the best choices. 

The brown trout are beginning to be more active and my fishermen have landed and lost some nice browns lately.  We are catching quite a few small browns and this is a good sign for the future.

Good Fishing!!
