Fishing Report

August 27-September 2, 2023

Weather:7am Temp  Sunrise/Sunset - FM Full Moon September 29th, Full Corn Moon
Sunday 39º 6:21/7:35 Clear and cool, warming up nicely.
Monday 42º 6:22/7:34 Clear and cool early, starting to warm up again. Big, Little, Trumbull and the Creek were stocked.
Tuesday 57º 6:23/7:32 Clear with light wind early and picking up by 10am.
Wednesday 51º 6:24/7:31 Breezy but clear.
Thursday 49º 6:24/7:29 Light wind most of the day until around 5pm then it just started blowing and blew all night.
 Friday 47º 6:25/7:28 Wind gusted and blew all day AND NO ONE IS FISHING, TOO COLD and windy.
Saturday 46º 6:26/7:26

Wind blew all night and it's been raining since 8am off and on all day.

Monsoon is finally over and we are having wonderful weather. Cold mornings with beautiful afternoons (80 degrees 8.28), plenty of bugs to keep the fly fishers in trout heaven.  NO problem if they pay attention to the rises.

BAIT: Worms, power worms, powerbait, micetails and pinched crawlers doing a great job. Recent stocking means lots of lures

LURES: 1.6 oz Red/gold Buoyant, silver/blue Kastmaster 1/8th oz, Rooster tails, Silver Super Duper 501, O gold Mepps, bleeding frog Buoyant and Taz Devil and any small gold spoons.

FLY AND BUBBLE: Black gnat red tail, tentwing caddis, Adams parachute, grey hackle yellow and Griffith's Gnat and any small dark flies.

FLY RODS: Early in the week streamers, dark and blue adult damsels, hoppers, prince nymph, and emergers. Great hatches the last few days before the rain, and dark mayflies (duns), blue damsels are hiding out until the rain stops. Matuka's, black crystal buggers produced during the rain but no one tried midges. Also try midges or even some flashy buggers and leeches. Lots of different flies have been working and getting the info out of the "fly" guys is tough.

BACKCOUNTRY: Not much news this week probably due to the weather.

NOTE: If the trout bleeds don’t throw it back into the lake, it will die. If you care about the resource please be careful when releasing fish back into the water and IT ATTRACKS BEARS. More bears are NOT what we need.
