Summer is Here?

Bass fishing was good Friday morning. Two beginners killed it with the black yuk bug! Nice job!

Due to the heat wave of the last week, area rivers and streams have risen. Flows have leveled out and even come down some in places due to today’s cooler weather, but expect them to remain unfishable for the next couple of weeks. My prediction is an early end to high water this season. That means the Stillwater should be ready to float fish by the last week in June. Wade fishing will remain a challenge into early July. The good news is that the lower elevation lakes are fishing well right now. The damsels and dragons are out early. Small wooly buggers in olive or black are a good bet to imitate the nymphs. Strip ’em slowly to imitate the natural fly swimming. Damsels are being taken dry as well. There is some mayfly activity in early morning. A parachute Adams should do nicely.
