Fishing remains good on the Little Red. Low, clear water during the day is good for fly fishing and the fish are active.  There is a midge hatch in the mornings and mid to late afternoon, with a small mayfly hatch in the afternoon.  Small nymphs, midge pupas and emergers are still the best bet.  Light tippet and a good presentation are more important due to the clarity of the water.
October 15th is drawing near and that is the date the mandatory generation ends.  Hopefully we will continue to see a regular generation keeping the water temps and depth of the water on the shoals at a good level for fall fishing and the brown spawn.  I have not noticed any brown activity on the shoals but my fisherman are catching an occasional brown and it is a bit early for the browns to be moving to the shoals.

Good Fishing!!
