Yep, it sure is.
It’s the middle of August, and here in Pinedale, that means cooler nights and lower water temps. The fish like that, so we like that too. As a result, our fishy friends are getting more active during the middle of the day and the action has been consistently good on dry/dropper rigs, terrestrials, and some wee little baby tricos.
The Fishy Stuff:
New Fork River: 345 CFS @ Big Piney. They’re still blowing up Chubbies, and we’re seeing lots of action on smaller flies with tons of Tricos popping off in the mornings and Caddis in the evenings.
Green River: 300 CFS @ Warren Bridge. Chubbies, Tricos, Hoppers, Ants, Beetles. It’s terrestrial time out there, so pair up something foamy with a nymph dropper and get after it.
Seedskadee: 1330 CFS @ Fontenelle Dam. Aaaaand we’re back to the small stuff. Tricos and Blue Wings all over, with a smattering of Yellow Sallies.
Lakes: Late summer in the high country means fish are hungry! Scuds, leeches, terrestrials, and small baitfish patterns will get the job done.
