I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! I was fortunate enough to have a good buddy in from out of town and my family visiting from Colorado. I was able to take my buddy JB and my father out fishing for a few days, something that we don't get to do as often as I would like. Fortunately our fishing was very good. We had excellent dry fly sight fishing for some quality browns and rainbows. As far as the rivers go, the Snake ans Salt rivers have been fishing really well with both dries and nymph droppers. The fishing has been getting better on a daily basis and we're starting to catch some bigger fish. The rivers flows have been great recently and the fishing should continue to improve as long as the flows remain stable. The Green is still fishing well with a consistent gray drake and PMD hatch, but the water is beginning to warm up later in the day. This means we've been getting on the river earlier in the day and getting off a little earlier after the fishing has slowed down and the water has warmed up. This way we're hitting the prime fishing times and avoiding stressing the fish when the water gets up in the upper 60 degree range.
