River Report: June 7, 2021
Watersheds up and down the state differ greatly. The southern part of the state has been getting all the precipitation, so levels are relatively good in those areas. The north, not so much, with the exception of the NE corner where they received a couple of Tstorms that helped them. Seems we always need rain and the 7-day forecast reflects that. We definitely don’t need the heat. I feel there is never a need for 85 let alone 90+ degrees. This has already put some trout water into the 70+ range. The 7-day forecast looks much more kind with air temps getting back to seasonal averages or a little below. This should put any water temps that have pushed over 70, back under by next weekend.
We have been getting many trout trips in and the trout fishing has really been good. Nymphs emergers and dries of March browns, pale morning duns, and yellow sallies have been working exceptionally. The fish were so aggressive a couple of days back they were eating anything we threw, even hoppers that we originally were using for strike indicators.
The Bass fishing has been pretty good as well. Buggers and Clousers are all we’ve needed to get the take. Different day different color and sometimes sizes, so it’s good to have an assortment with a couple Clousers or streamer 6 inches long. It’s a good day when you can catch trout in the morning then smallies in the afternoon.
We’ve been getting groups out with women continuing to grace us with their presents on the water. So much fun just getting outdoors and loving nature with family and friends. Get a tug and a hug is a bonus.
