Spawn still on…

Little town brown, caught slow stripping an Olive Leadeye...

Junior Varsity but still nice colors...

Not much has changed over here.  Most of the browns are still on (or near) their redds.  Still, there are a few fish to be found in the classic swing water, runs, and riffles.   Typically these fish will be smaller than the spawning class, but are still fun for a quick half day float or for a few hours of wade fishing.  The nice part about fishing right now is that you’ll pretty much have the river to yourself.  Water temperatures have been lower so if you’re throwing streamers try swinging them deep and slow or dead drifting them.  Nymph fishing has been more productive than anything.  Be ready to bust out your baetis dries when / if the clouds roll in.  There have been a lot more midges than baetis collecting in the foam but the few fish that are actively feeding on dries have been keying in on the blue wings…
