Fall Creeps into Summer – Local Fishing Improves

Signs of fall are in the midges and small numbers of size #16 tan caddis. Mahogany Duns and fish looking up in shallow water mean that the high sun of summer is past us. Dry fly fishing is better and fish will come to Parachute Adams, Parachute Caddis and attractors like Hippy Stompers and Royal Madam X. Nymphs are still working, possie buggers and pheasant tails have been best. Euro Nymphing tactics have been gaining steam, and those that put in the time are doing really well fishing the deeper slots of the river with longer leaders and heavy slender jig patterns. No matter how you slice it some of the best fishing of the year is coming our way in the over the next 60 days. Enjoy!
