I had a chance to fish "The T" Thurs. afternoon and found happy fish under the heavy flows! The flow came up to 342cfs this last week, and although I did not see much in the way of rising fish I found ideal conditions for czech nymphing. A Six Dollar Burger with caddis pupa and Pandemic PMD dropper fished well through the lower and middle river. Foam back RSII and Sow Bug worked well under the dam. Fish the edges and eddies, where you find one you'll find a bunch. The flow on the lower river downstream of Idylwilde through the narrows is tasty right now, appearing to be about 100cfs lower than up above. Witnessed PMD's, Caddis, and Yellow Sallies in decent numbers.

This 3-pound fish was caught on a Black Bart at 12:30 pm today...... he was cruising along the shallows against a dam. I caught another about the same size an hour later. Given the heat and the bright sun this was a bit unusual. As the days get hotter, you'll find the best fishing starting at 2:00 am in the morning until 8:00 am or so.

Boulder Creek is down to 150 cfs and fishing well. Focus on being stealth and making good presentations with large attractor dries. If fishing gets tough use a bright green caddis emerger, preferably tied with a tungsten bead. Look for hoppers and ants to become more effective in the coming weeks.

Work damsel and dragon fly nymphs along the shoreline and watch for Callibeatis hatches in the mid-morning hours...this insect can be the most dominant summer insect on Western stillwaters and depending on the season, they offer a predictable chance to catch large trout on dry flies when rivers and streams are unfishable.
