Water levels are dropping and launching anything but a canoe at Narciss is impossible. The main boat ramp is still usable, but boaters should use caution. Bass fishing is picking up with the warmer weather and anglers report good days for numbers and fair days for keepers. Soft plastic worms and grubs in dark greens, purple, blue and motor oil with sparkles in them rigged weedless are the way to fish for bass here. In the collection ditch fishing is fair to good for anglers willing to put the time in and move along it until they get into fish but watch for snakes. Fishing the collection ditch has been good for trout using a variety of flies, spinners and lures. There continues to be a mayfly hatch along the ditch so mayfly emergers and dries should work. Other flies that are working include prince nymphs, frostbite chironomids, black or olive wooly buggers, crystal buggers, PT’s, black callibaetis and mayfly emerger patterns. Dry flies should include Adams, PMD’s small elk hair caddis, damsel fly adults, hoppers, ants and small stimulators. The collection ditch is artificial lures only.
