Our Report

OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK:

1. Stuart Mill Bay opens July 1.
2. Start looking for calibaetis action to pick up. Nymphs and dries will fish all day.
3. Try running a chironomid under a leech pattern.

7 DAY OUTLOOK:

Weather looks great up there. A little chance of rain and some clouds tend to turn things on up there, if the wind cooperates.

Our Philipsburg location, Flint Creek Outdoors, is open 7 days a week, 7:30a-5p.  Stop in and talk to Josh for up-to-date information.

BEST TECHNIQUES:

Double nymph rig, single dry fly
