Fishing Conditions

July 28, 2021

If you head this way, try fishing above McCloud as flows and temps will be more favorable up that way.  Terrestrials and Stimulators should do the trick on the surface.  Hopper season has started!  If nothing is happening on the surface try some soft hackle mayflies.
