So far it’s a great August on the Little Red with clear water and cooler than normal weather.  Afternoon generation has been the rule with generation beginning about 1:00 pm. during the week and sometimes later on the weekend. 
There has been a blue wing olive hatch mid-day to early afternoon and the bite is best during this time.  Midge pupas, small pheasant tail nymphs, and small fox squirrel nymphs have been the best choices.  During the hatch, size 20 or 18 Mayfly emergers have been taking browns.  Try fishing them dry or just under the surface when the fish are rising.
Hope everyone is enjoying the low water.  Please remember to limit your kayak or canoe trips to the low water sections on the river.  It makes for a much more enjoyable and safer outing.  Be safe and respect the high water during generation.

Good Fishing!!
