Things have been great here, save for a few days with some high winds in the morning. Things were taking a while to get going after that last cold snap, but I've been getting fish as soon as I pitched the anchors over the last few days. I've been running red early in the mornings but by 8:30 they're off the larva and onto the pupa patterns. You're going to want to move your bottom flies off the bottom a little bit more when you're running pupa patterns as well. I've seen fish in Big Hilton in 22-24ft, the West side of McGee Bay in anywhere from 24-30ft of water. There are some fish back in Crooked, but they're deep and not interested in eating much, same goes for most of the North Arm. I think it's a lot of those cutthroat that are done with their spawn. Seeing some fish out at Sandy point, also in around 20-23ft. Not seeing very many Damsels, and this is the time of year for them. Water temps are actually quite cold considering we're more than halfway through June.  Fish are going to be in some odd places until the water warms up and pushes the fish into the stream channels.
