Fishing Report

How's Fishing? We have had another good week of fishing. Several nice trout along with several lunkers were brought up. The water is still very clear, low and flowing pretty slow. Several different flies, jigs and lures were used this week to catch some nice fish. We had several anglers who reported great top water action with beetles.  Dry flies such as the griffiths gnat and the renegade were also a couple favorites for fishing the top water this week. Glo balls in apricot, apricot with red dot, orange, white were working very well. Trout magnets seemed to be another popular lure in zone 3. Marabou was also working well in the salmon color and orange color. I hope everyone has had a great weekend. Good luck, be safe and well see you on the stream.
