Water Conditions: Good the water level is down considerably and very warm. There are weeds everywhere. The water is beginning to cool some.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Decent hatches if you can find the fish. Inlets are clogged with weeds and very difficult to fish stream channels. Stay outside the weed lines by these cold water sources and you should do well. Probably better off stripping from the tube than midging right now.

RECOMMENDED FLIES:

Nymphs:
Shaft Emerger Small, Red Baron, Black Dubbed Head Optimidge #18, Copper Tiger Midge #18-20, Black/Red Tiger Midge #18-20

Streamers: Perfection Perch, Punk Perch, Hornberg, Olive Matuka, Black Wolly Bugger, Flashabou Bugger, Rickard's Seal Bugger
