Re: 7-13 Report

Had a pretty similar experience. Lots of fish nymphing with most over 12" and one about 18". A small, dark BH mayfly nymph worked best for me, but think I'm familiar with the fly you mentioned. We stopped at a larger stream north of I-90 on the way home and we were glad to see that it had cooled off...

July 8 report

Fished early and kept it short. Stream was 55F when we started about 8 am. I'm sure it was still plenty cold when we left about 11 am. But with the sun and air temps rising and water bottle levels dropping, we had had enough. Got a 18", 16" and around a dozen others. All browns and all quite well fe...

Stream temps

Was out today and saw stream temps of 67, 58 and 71 on three different streams. Streams are heating up and some streams more so than others. It's generally considered good practice to carry a stream thermometer, pay attention to stream temps, and leave the fish alone if a stream is running 67 or hig...

Re: Fly Line Repair?

If it's 1.5", I would just cut it off and whip a new loop in the line ...

I typically end up cutting off and redoing cracked loops and tip a couple times before a replace a line.

6/29 and 7/1 Report

Fished Monday and again today with jay92. We got a little bit of late start on Monday with the storms rolling through early. Drove through a major watershed north of I-90, but everything looked very dirty. So we headed south which seemed to have gotten much less rain Sunday-Monday. Found a stream wh...

Re: streams

Was out Monday and again today. There was very little rain south of I-90 and most streams down there are in good shape. We drove through WW area on Monday and everything looked pretty dirty.

Re: Larry Gavin

I thought White Glove Howdy was Larry. He was the one who so generously offered to loan me a rod when I broke mine last year. Jrs I have a three Weight Scott rod you can use for as long as you need one. Having trouble with pm’s or would have used that. Let me know. BTW, Larry is also mentioned in Jo...

Re: Fishing Report 6/24

In dark colors the Hippie Stomper can imitate a beetle. I use them mainly in larger sizes, #10-#12, as they are visible and will float a small beadhead dropper. But I've seen them in shops down to #16. The larger #10-#12 work especially well in choppy riffles and pocket water where the fish need to ...
