Fishing Overview: Subsurface flies such as cress bugs, scuds, small pheasant tails, and midges should produce. It’s still terrestrial season, so a foam beetle in a size 14 will do the trick.

Specifics and Tips: Drifting sow bugs in the channels between beds of cress always works. Cast terrestrials close to the bank, under overhanging foliage. Look for Tricos in the mornng..
