Fishing Overview: Midges are coming off in the afternoon and trout are rising. Small size 18 and 20 CDC midge emerges have been the most effective. Nymphing the deeper pools and getting it down to the bottom has also been effective, but you may catch a few chubs... Dead drifting buggers has also proven deadly.

Specifics and Tips: Water temp has been rising throughout the week. It's small fly season! Come in the shop and stock up on 6x and 7x tippet to tie on those sz 20-22 midges. Worms, scuds, and eggs are all wise choices at this point in the season. Be patient and fish the slower, deeper runs.

Conservation Note: If you see trash in the streams pick it up help keep our treasured streams clean and full of trout.
Not having a barb on the hook will help with quick releases, and decrease the chances of gill damage to the fish.
