District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report
|Terrestrial patterns such as Hoppers, Ants, Beetles and especially Crickets continue to be effective and have taken some particularly big Browns. #18 Baetis patterns have been the predominant mayfly hatch mornings and evenings. #18 Wet Fly and Emerger patterns have also been excellent choices. Nymphing small midges or fishing bright streamers has been good in stained water.|
