Fishing Conditions

July 8, 2020

The Boulder has dropped significantly and is looking good. July is a great time to throw a dry dropper rig. A chubby or stimulator with an attractor mayfly nymph below is a good bet. Be careful wading this river still as the water is cold and the rocks are always slippery.
