Here we are in the middle of August and things are starting to wind down.It has been a bit warm and dry but this week has brought some super charged rain along with cool temps. All of our major hatches are all but gone now as the last of the ephorons are gone. for the remainder of the trout season look for caddis, a few stones and bwos will be the primary focus for the dry fly fisher person. Fall can and usually is a great time for any self-proclaimed streamer junkie though as the fish have the feed bag on to fatten up for winter so get out there and rip n strip some big *** streamers!!!!
So here we are in the middle of summer with no shortage of warm weather this year! With what I would describe as an awesome summer so far this high heat and low percentage of rain fall is as we all know having an adverse affect on my trout streams though. Right now I would say that the trout fishing in my area is fair to good with the very early and late evening hrs being the best. The major hatches going on right now are as follows golden stones, caddis, bwos, tricos and the occasional lt cahill. fishing the smaller tribs for brookies is your best bet as the larger rivers are heating up daily and flows are at a minimum.
With this warmth you also need to take special care to take your photos quickly and take your time with the release. These fish will want to jump right out of your net/hands but remember if released to fast after landing them they will just belly up down river so take your time with them and their release
Until next time God bless and be safe!.
