The river remains clear with afternoon generation.  The summer pattern of generation remains about the same from 2:00 pm until 6:00 or 7:00 pm.  This allows wade fishing throughout the day by starting early in the upper river and staying ahead of the generation the rest of the day. 
The bite has been good with a blue wing olive hatch being the main catalyst.  Midges are also active in the morning.  Small pheasant tail nymphs, pheasant tail emergers and other blue wing olive emergers are good choices along with midge pupa.   

The weather forecast for the rest of the week is for cooler temperatures in the 80’s and a good chance of rain.  As long as the rain isn’t a “gully washer”, it shouldn’t affect fishing.  Cloudy skies and a little rain may even help.  If the rain doesn’t muddy the river all should be well.

Good Fishing!!
