Great flow great color. Black and white midges in 28-32. BWO's in 16-24. And a good Humpy Hatch in the small streams!!
There it is folks, sunshine sunshine!! Air temps have made a rebound from our weekend freeze. Looks like 60's and low 70's with no sign of rain for a while. BWO'S have been hatching this morning like popcorn.
P-Tails and cream midges are being used as well
It is a gray and rainy day on The Elk but the levels and color are great. BWO's are still hatching. The browns are in spawning mode and with the air temps dropping for the weekend we should see a the brooks spawning too.
River is at perfect conditions once again. Great color and levels. Little brown stones and BWO's are enjoying the blue skies of Autumn as wells the Autumn Sedges too. There are some openings in lodging this week and weekend still so come snout and see us.
Rain is still falling and the river is finally coming up. Three more days are in the forecast and much needed so don't complain. BWO's are popping and the Sedges are still in swing. Put on your raincoat and get up to The Elk.
The Elk is getting a little low but it is raining today. The fishing however has stayed great through-out the summer and continues. If you are into midges, this is the time for you. #28-32 baetis as well as small terrestrials are working well.
Very large fish are still being caught on the Mill Pool on a daily basis.
A little rain in the forecast today but sunny skies for the rest of the week. The Elk looks amazing with trout rising in abundance. Canes, Baetis and Cahills are still spinning.
Here is a look at the river this morning ....
See you on the river ! elkfisher
Just as good as it EVER gets here :) !! There are trout rising in pods sipping a variety of tiny critters with #28 Bwo's and micro midges being the foods of choice . It is almost too easy .....The river is beautiful with fantastic flows for July . Honestly it is better dry fly fishing right now then it was during the the Sulphur hatch , without the crowds . Triple digit catches for a day are a real possibility if you are comfortable with fishing tiny stuff and light tippets and heavy into double digits with terrestrials and heavier gear .
