Fish have been rising really well to hoppers throughout the day. Hoppers are here and stay until late September. PMD’s and caddis are also working very well in the evenings from 7-10.  Caddis range from size 12-16.

Fish will rise all through the day on cloudy and overcast days.

On slower days, nymphing is always a great way to catch fish.

Effective Patterns:

Dries: Dave’s hoppers, PMD’s, Elk Hair Caddis, Royal Wulff, BWO, Stimis, and Green Drakes.

Nymphs: Da bomb, Pheasant Tail, Hares Ear, Prince Nymph, and Copper Johns.
