Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Water is very low and clear which makes blind casting to holding water less effective. Be patient and find a feeding fish. Work slowly into position as you may have one cast before spooking your target. Often a downstream and slightly across presentation is your best bet to get your fly in the feeding lane and not line the fish.

Seven-day forecast 

Water is still really low. Looks like some hot weather coming this week along with some rain hopefully. Get out early in the morning while air and water are still cool.
