Shorter days colder mornings and fewer anglers on the river. Fall is here! The cooler nights have made for a longer window mid-morning. While mostly nymphing, anglers are still finding good opportunities with dries using caddis, BWO’s, PMD’s and hoppers mid-day. We expect the streamer bite to pick up in the following weeks as temps continue to drop making fish more willing to chase a fly.
