We have had beautiful weather this week and the fishing seems to be just as good. The stream hasn't changed much with a normal flow and very clear water. Several anglers this week have reported good fishing. We have had some real nice fish brought up this week. So what is everyone using. As far as flies, Renegades, Griffiths Gnats, and Cracklebacks have been the most popular. The colors of the cracklebacks have been different for each angler. Some like the reds and gold and some are strictly throwing the Bennett Blue. Mop flies this week have been working good in cream, white and the orange. In zone three orange Powerbait was what a majority the anglers said was working the best. I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend and good luck on the stream.
