The summer weather around here continues to keep us fishing guides on our toes. For a while there, things were getting hot; fishing was good in the morning and slowed a bit during the afternoon heat. This week however a much cooler, wetter trend took over. The wet, cool weather should help keep local water temperatures in check and make for better fishing throughout July and August.
I had the pleasure this week of fishing several repeat anglers as well as few new ones. We fished the Green and Snake rivers, finding fish in both. The Green has fished well lately with Dry (big rubber-legged stoneflies) dropper rigs. Today, with fishing slowing due to rising water levels, we switched to streamers a caught some real nice browns. Like the Green, our Snake river cutthroat trout have been falling for yellow sally patterns and small chernobyl type flies. A lot of smaller fish are taking dry flies with the occasional bigger cutt coming to the surface.
Derek shows off a nice Brown from the Green today. This guy feel for a Black and Red streamer.
