The Upper continues to produce some of the most consistent fishing in the region. Big trout and good numbers on a daily basis. The most consistent action has been nymphing big streamers trailed by smaller attractor nymphs. Large stonefly nymphs on top have also been a good option. The dry fly eat has been hit or miss but hoppers and espeically ants are starting to turn some heads. The water has dropped a bit and trout are moving into the heavy slots and the fast current around the rock wells. You can't just float down the middle of the river any more and catch fish all day, pay attention to where you get hooked up and look for more of the same. If you can pattern the water and find the holding locations the trout are definitely eating.
The Month Ahead:
The next few weeks should produce very stable fishing conditions well into mid September. The hopper fishing may improve as the grass continues to dry out. Continue looking for trout in the fast water for the next few weeks and then slowly move back to the slower deeper runs as temps cool down.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
Late September and October always produces great fishing. Competing anglers are gone and the trout become keyed in on some fall hatches like the baetis. Some of the wade areas like the Slide become less pressured and are very good. The entire upper river will produce some very big browns in October as they get frisky in preparation for the November spawn.
