School has started at this point so I'll only be guiding on the weekends from here on out. I've guided the past two days on the snake and did have some time to finally fish on my own. The fishing has been excellent with big dries working early and PMD's coming off in the late morning. Streamers are working on cloudy days, but are certainly slower during the sunny times of day. Here are a few fish from recent days, one of the cutties was actually over 20inches but doesn't look like it in the pictures.

Fishing has picked up in the area recently. The Snake is fishing very well with dries, both small and large, and we're seeing some good fish up top. The South fork, unfortunately, is still a nymphing game and I'm skeptical that it will ever fish well with dries this year. The green is still fishing, but its a super early morning fishery that will shut down by noon or one. I'll try and keep up the posting after the school year starts here. I hope everyone is having a good year. It should be a great fall!

Fishing has taken a drastically positive turn in the past week. The Snake has started to clear and is fishing well with dry flies, the Green continues to fish well, and the South Fork is fishing much better than it has been. I just got back from a trip on the upper South Fork and the fishing was better than expected. It was all nymphs and streamers but the water levels looked good and the visibility was more than enough. When the bugs get going, that place it going to explode! Here are some pictures from a few days I fished with the Lenzen group, some good guys who are fun to fish with.

It's amazing that August is already here and the fishing season is just getting started. We've had some good fishing in the area with the best fishing coming in the early hours of the day or under cloudy skies. Streamers have worked well along with good hatches of gray drakes, PMDs, and yellow sallies. The south fork currently remains off color even with the water finally stabilizing. Hopefully it will begin to shape up here a little later in the week. Flat Creek just opened up today and should be fishing well. I have a trip there tomorrow so I'll have a better idea of the fishing conditions shortly. Here are a few pictures from some recent trips in the area.
