The river remains the same---low and clear with no generation.  I have been on the river guiding every day since Sunday with my clients catching a lot of rainbows and today was the first day to catch any browns.  My client caught 9 browns today between 15" and 18".  Hopefully this is a sign they are getting more active.  All but one were caught on a midge pupa.  Small flies still seem to be the best choice.  He did a good job handling these browns on a size 20 with 6x tippet.  Patience and a light hand are needed .

The rainbows are holding in the deeper pools and the browns  seem to still be above and below the shoals.  A few are being seen on the shoals but the water remains so low that they are very spooky.  Only a couple of redds have been reported.  With cooler weather predicted for the weekend, maybe this will help start the spawn.

A special thanks to a fisherman who helped me find my fly box that fell out of my vest pocket while wading!  Didn't get his name but THanks!

Thank you to all our veterans.

Be courteous to your fellow fishermen!

Good Fishing!!
