Daily River Report

July 28, 2014

Early and late is the name of the game right now, especially with the temps we will be having the next few days or so.  Mornings have been the most consistent.  Look for PMD spinners to be falling in the morning. A sz 16 Purple Haze with a PMD spinner tied off the bend will get you into rising fish.  A purple or black Chubby with a Tungsten Reckoner, Purple Berger, Prince, PT or Rubberlegs is a great way to search inbetween risers.  Caddis and Yellow Sallies will round out your day.  Tie on a yellow Stimi with an X-Caddis off the bend or Snowshoe Caddis.  Small hoppers are beginning to work as well.  Tan Morrish Hoppers, Panty Dropper Hopper or Yeti Hopper's.
It's fishing season!  We are fully stocked in the shop for all your fishing needs!
