SUMMER HOURS. 7am-5pm Sun-Thu., 7am-6pm Fri-Sat.
What a great cool down. This makes it a lot nicer for fishing. The first boat ramp below the dam is washed out and unusable for boats. Kayaks and canoes can still launch there. Water is getting low and there is alot of wadable water nowIf a person wanted some trout for dinner right now you could realistically get dinner in less time than it will take you to drive here. Lots and Lots of fish from the Cane Break turnaround to HWY 62 bridge. ALL of it is wadeable now. If your just fishing for the fun of it get a light rod, light line and a smile then you will be ready. LIGHT line is more important than choice of lure or bait right now. I had very good luck this week with both PJ's Jigs and Trout Magnet jigs. With the fly rod we used mostly #18 prince nymph or a Pheasant Tail with 7X tippet.
The old standby, grey or olive midges are working well.
Nickle and gold Colorado spoon it hard to beat. 3.5" Rapala in generating water will make you smile.
White and yellow power bait with a wax worm will always catch fish.
Good luck and bring us a fish story.
