Well monsoon season has hit the Cicadas and lowered the temperatures. August brings us new flows of 17,000cfs-9,000 so just down some from last month. I have not yet been with these waters but I believe it should play to our advantage. Last time up river we threw deep nymphing rigs anywhere from 9-12' to the first fly trailing another fly about 16-22". AB was the norm weight for the faster water. Good flys for the month were San Juan worms brighter colors rust, red, orange, in the clouds a dark chocolate worked well. Scuds worked but they must be big. Always in smoother seams our midging rig with a dead drift is bangin. I have my favorite midges patterns I tie, but for the most part take a swoop with your hat in the next midge hatch and check what color they are. Small black,red,purple zebras should be in your box. If you like to throw streamers we suggest heavy sink tips and olive colored flys. Streamers are a lot of action and a lot of work, generally paying off well with nice fish. I will have a Walk in report for you hopefully Thursday evening. July was a good month so here are some pics of my last week. Thanks Mike for landing this nice 19+ hen awesome job and timing.. She is the same fish in the net.
Thanks for checking up till next time keep that dead drift running.
