River Update 8-27-15
Well the water and air temps finally went down below Mio this week (way down), till it actually feels like Fall. White Flys were out nightly about 1 hour before dark, but not large numbers. Caught fish daily, but nothing to brag about. Most of the better fish caught were on Nymphs, and Small Streamers. For Dry Flys BWO #18, Lt. Cahills, and Whites did the job. Weather is suppose to heat back up again over the weekend, and next week so White Fly Hatch might be a little heavier. Better get out on the River while Mother Nature continues to cooperate & Good Luck! Give me a call if you want to get in on the White Fly Hatch before it is over!! Weekly reports and fresh pics as they come in, so keep checking back weekly. Remember August White Fly's is the last May Fly of the season, so call now to get your day in. God Bless & Good fishing, Dennis
