Fishing Report

How's Fishing?  Fishing was pretty normal for this time of the year. Finding a nice shady spot on the stream seemed to be where the fish were.  Bugs, dry flies and cracklebacks were very popular and seem to be working well. A majority of the anglers reported they were having to fish deep  water this week.  Several anglers who were fishing the river reported Orange Powerbait and White and Glitter Powerbait were also doing well. Yellow PowerBait was working well at the stream. The  stream is looking very clear and has that nice "Bennett Blue" look to it. We hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck on the stream.
