The Fish Report - July 24, 2008



Water Conditions:Good
The water is crystal clear!!! It's perfect!

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:Good
Start with trico's and midges in the morning. The trico's don't seem to be quite as thick anymore. Midmorning there will be migrating caddis along with some hatching, depending on the weather witch may bring fish to the surface. If nothing is hatching throw some hoppers as they are out and about and very abundant. Later in the afternoon there has been a very good caddis hatch with the afternoon thunder heads building up. Remember these fish are fished on ALL OF THE TIME by lots of anglers and guides. Downsize everything, bugs, tippet, etc.
The weeds are thick and it's getting technical but the fishing is still awesome if you want to test your skills!
