Dry Fly Fishing at its Finest

August fishing can be hit or miss depending on our snow pack and summer temperatures.  During a drought year we often find ourselves nymphing on bright/hot/sunny/hot…did I say hot afternoons.   Well this summer nymphing is just a distant memory.  With temperatures in the 70’s…and a few days last week barely in the 60’s the dry fly fishing has been excellent.  We are seeing thick hatches of PMD’s, Caddis, Golden Stones, and even a few Blue Winged Olives last week on the cold cloudy afternoons.   We are also finding a lot of fish willing to eat hoppers.  Fishing has been so consistent this summer that many of our guests who came out in July or early August are booking a second or even third trip in September.  We look forward to seeing everyone whether it’s your first trip or your third for 2009.

Good Fishing,

Chris “Jigidy” Jensen
