Aug 2, 2020- EXCELLENT Seasonal Levels-- Some decent rain is in the forecast the next 2 days. July was one of the best summer months I have fished in several seasons and August is looking excellent also starting out . It's all about rainfall and the headwater springs and streams are still pumping out lots of water on the watersheds close by. We have been taking some really nice, healthy and hard fighting Rainbows in the 10- 18'' Range on Terrestrials including hoppers, ants & & beetles on my stream trips . Please contact me for availability. A huge favorite this season has been my Introduction to Flyfishing Trips.

The last couple of hours you get to test yourself in some high energy, high leaping Rainbow trout.. Gift Certificates can be mailed immediately.

"Roberts knows the area waters with the sort of familiarity which can only come from a lifetime of angling, and he has just the sort of laid-back personality that works equally well for putting novices at ease or offering tips to seasoned veterans. '' Jim Casada, The Angling Review
Great Time To Fish
2020 AUGUST FLYFISHING OVERVIEW - August can be a slowdown month but not this year. One of the gauges I use to determine trout health & fishability in the warmer months is testing to see if trout will rise on a fly mid-day and they are running strong & hungry this year. As insect aquatic hatches slow this month land based insects play a bigger part in the trout diet. This is a fun time to try ant, beetle, grasshopper and the many other terrestrials along streamside this month. One of the main considerations in the handling of trout at this time to keep them as wet as possible as you remove the fly hook, This means wetting your hands before touching them and getting them back in the water as soon as possible. Trout are cold water creatures and much more delicate than bass . It is not a bad idea to take any pictures of them in or under the water. Trout this month are much more tippet and predator shy as waters go down so 6x - 8x tippets can gsme changers especially in hammered public waters.
