Water Temp: Mid 60's

Fishing Overview: Dry dropper fishing works great this time of year. Fish a larger buoyant caddis dry with a small nymph 18-24" underneath it. Don't overlook terrestrials like ants and beetles. Small streamers will work well if we continue to get rain.

Specifics and Tips: Keep a low profile and work your way upstream. Long leaders and 6x will be your best bet if you're casting to rising fish. While fish will certainly eat some bigger patterns, smaller flies usually produce more consistent action.
