Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Water has been up a bit this week with the local rains. Dropping now but your best bet may still be streamers and nymphs. Look to bankside holding water or 'soft'' water adjacent to current seams for dry fly action.

If you're fishing mornings try swinging caddis pupa imitations and soft hackle wets through riffles and heads of pools. A great way to imitation drifting and emerging caddis and effective way to cover water.

Seven-day forecast 

More of the same.... Forecast looks great with a possibility of some rain to keep the flows stable.
