 "August Style" fishing. Hoppers!!!
 
When you get out there early prospect with a chubby and your favorite PMD (mayfly) dropper about a size 14-16 or smaller yellow sallie, golden, or rubblerlegs size 10-12. Dont forget about your friend the pink san juan worm. As the day gets warmer dry throwing those bigger attractors tight on the banks and throw those inside diamond chop runs.
 
 
Ants, Beetles, big mayfly parachutes Hoppers and chubbies are the afternoon flies. Tan and yellow hoppers seem to be producing the best up higher. Larger hoppers in size 8-10 has been picking up some chunky bows.
