There is a tree just downstream from the Wally put in, STAY CENTER CHANNEL.
The root is in summer condition… lowing and clear.
Call us for specific details and if we can’t help, we will get you to the folks that know!
BEST TECHNIQUES – The root is in full summer flows, low and clear.
We have been having good luck with throwing a stone or mayfly under a big dry (hopper or any foam body), a double dry, or just throwing a single mayfly dry in the mornings.
Don’t be afraid to run a little deeper with your dropper, 3′-4′ with the water clearing.
You may find some fish rising to mayflies (PMDS, sallys, or tricos) in side channels and eddy lines.
Look for deeper shelf drop-off and be sure get your rig up on the shelf to ensure they sink properly into the drop.
OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK –
Fish it all and you will find them where you find them!
We are finding fish on shelf drop-offs (tan to green), buckets along banks, eddys, and in the heavier current lines.
With water temps on the rise, please give the fish some extra TLC when releasing them. Let’s be good to them!
Please still be careful when floating… there is still a lot of debris down that could be a problem.
