Hatches: tiny BWOs, creme midges, October Caddis

Fly Suggestions:  October Caddis pupae size 8, Orange Palmer, Orange Stimulator, Boss Hogs size 12 and 16, Purple Prince nymphs size 14, Red Rubber legged Copper Johns size 14 and 16

General Information: Well it appears that the days of standing in one spot and catching 15 or 20 fish are behind us, at least for another week or so when the second stocking occurs. The first batch of fish has wised up a bit and require a smaller, somewhat more realistic fly to produce results. The lower water conditions don’t help either, so you also may have to be a bit stealthier on approach to the water.

Projected Conditions: The 10 day forecast promises continued cool temperatures, with little chance of rain. [it is that time of year after all]
