Summer fly fishing All the rivers have peaked from runoff earlier this month.  The water is still high but generally stable almost verywhere. The fishing is very good and getting even better, and the summer hatches are now starting.  Reservoir levels are still exceptional and the late afternoon rains are keeping lots of water in the systems.

On this day we had consistent action all day and managed to land some beautiful trout.  Some are pictured here and some others were a bit photo shy.  Nymph fishing was the most productive, but we did manage to land the last fish of the day on a large dry fly.  The dry fly
fishing should improve as water levels drop and the Green Drake mayflies get more active.

The trout seem to be exceptionally healthy this season with the abundant water, and fishing should be very good all summer.
