We missed the large amounts of rain that hit some areas of the state over the weekend but we did get enough to muddy the mid and lower sections of the river on Sunday.  The generation Monday cleared the river and all sections are fishable. 

The rainbow bite was good today with my fishermen catching fish on midge pupas and small mayfly nymphs. It may sound like a broken record when my reports keep using midge pupas but this time of the year the fish are looking for something small with midges and blue wing olive mayflies being the main insect activity.  Sow bugs are also available to the trout and I use these a backup. 

Fall is just around the corner with cooler temperatures and good fishing.  Plan a trip today with a friend or family member and enjoy the outdoors. It is a great way to escape and relax. Be safe, courteous and enjoy the river.

Good Fishing!!
