Fishing Report

How Fishing? 

The weather has been great the past couple of days.  We have had some nice  cool mornings and evenings along with some good fishing. I have seen angler catching some pretty nice fish- some big and some small but all in all pretty decent fishing. So what's working? Top water flies have been really popular the past couple weeks. Renegades, Griffiths Gnats, Parachute Adams and Quill Gordon's have been working the best. Beetles have also worked really well.

If you like to throw jigs, Ginger marabou and white marabou have been working well. In zone 3- Yellow Powerbait and Orange Powerbait has also been the color of choice for several anglers. 

We look to have another beautiful weekend ahead of us. I hope  everyone has a chance to make it back as the season is narrowing down. Have a great weekend and be safe.
