Fishing Report

How's Fishing?
The summer rush is starting to slow down  so there has been a  little bit more elbow room.   The fishing has been good this week. The fish brought up to the store  have been nice size as several 1 and 2 pounders have been brought up. So what has been working this week? Not a significant change in the lures and flies that have been working though the Adams Parachute Flies were pretty popular. Many anglers are fishing top water and subsurface during the morning and mid morning and going deeper during the afternoon. During the evenings, several anglers reported working the top water and having some success. In zone 3- several angels were saying the PowerBait - Power Eggs were working well. Also we had a couple customers asking for Bentley's Secret Bait and reported great fishing.  I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend and good luck on the stream.
