We are nearing the end of September, though it feels like August out there. Fishing has continued to be good, though rivers are extremely low. I have avoided anything but the big rivers as the small to mid size streams will be super spooky. The fish continue to look up and dries have out produced nymphs hands down for me. The Iso hatch is all but over, and Blue Wing Olives, and caddis have been the preferred choice of fish. There has been a great flurry the last half hour of light. Stay until dark, and even bring a headlamp and you will be rewarded.
The heat and low water have kept me from fishing any streamers for large browns or exploring some of the LL Salmon rivers. I have heard of some fish being caught, but until we have some real rain, its not going to be very reliable. I hope to target some very large fish after it rains next weekend.
