River Report June 30, 2022
Rivers up and down the state are in pretty decent conditions. Occasions of rain have keep levels right around average for the end of June. We have also had a very nice end of spring. Air temperature has been very appreciative in the upper 70’s daytime and low 50’s at night. Let’s keep this train rolling into July. Those conditions looke to remain the same during the 1st seven days, but more dry over the period.
The fishing has been really good. Our guides have been putting guests on multiple species of trout, bass, pike and fall fish. In land ponds and lakes are heating up with bass and trout. This is the time of year when the Hexagena hatch. To my knowledge, it’s the largest of the May flies. They are such a large morsel that every fish in the lake will feed on the surface for them. I have caught catfish and lake trout on dries.
