We are finally seeing some dryer weather, If it only last for a few days. Looks like all rivers and streams are coming into or now in good fishing conditions.
True to form the trout are in the Midsummer picky mood. Some things never change, the trout knows the game. We need to be on our game this time of year. All the summer hatches our hedges are now coming off and all of our trout waters. Bugs will vary from watershed to watershed but generally speaking, Look for Tricos in the morning this is a small mayfly a size 20 and comeback in massive swarms, depending on air temperatures you’ll need to be in order summer between 6:30 AM to 7:30 AM and expect the fishing to be over by mid to late morning. Ware there is Isonycnia this will be a late evening hatch. This is a large bug a size 10. I have my best luck fishing a Isoncnia nymph, and then at desk shifting over to a rusty spinner.
Even though it is midsummer, and we have trout fishing and May flies on our mind. Salmon season is only 3 weeks away. It may seem early but it is not, especially if you have to make arrangements for lodging. Also the preliminary reports that I am receiving from the lake fisherman is very encouraging, they are experiencing very good salmon fishing out on the lake. Things are looking hopeful. The high water levels, that we’ve been hearing about on the lake is not affected the fish stacks at all. If anything the Lake high water levels has helped how are caused. Because of flooding a lot of boat traffic is not been able to access the lake until recently. The fishing pressure family has been unusually light. Also over the past two weeks there has been an extremely light trickle of salmon coming into the Salmon River. One of those deals where if you hunt hard enough, you just might find a salmon. Right now all I can say is everything looking good for some early to mid September salmon fishing. Hopefully this trend will continue.
Early fall we are offering a mixed fishing day. Fishing for salmon in the morning. This can be fishing for Chinook salmon of Atlantic salmon, depending on available.  For the afternoon, heading off to the brook trout water, for some dry fly fishing. we will be offering this until mid September when the salmon fishing becomes more consistent.
