We had a couple of really nice rain showers this week along with some really good fishing. The rain did not change the stream much and is still clear with a normal flow. So what is everyone using on the stream? Several anglers are either stripping cracklebacks or using dry flies. Another pretty popular jig this week was the fur bugs. These are comparable to the glow bugs though a little smaller. In zone 3 worms were very popular again this week. If you enjoy using Powerbait, the White with glitter and Orange with glitter were reported to be what was working the best. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weekend and good luck on the stream!
