It's windy - what else is new? There has been very little relief from the wind on the lower the past several days, but the fishing has been good for those hardy enough to battle it out. Timing casts between wind gusts has been the order of the week. This hasn't been a real problem as most of the fish are bucketed up right now and cast of 10-12ft are all that is really needed. Try using a smaller indicator or one that rides lower in the water to avoid wind drag. Truth be known, all that is really needed right now is an egg and worm combo, but fish are also eating crayfish, sculpins, midge pupa, scuds, and sowbugs. There have been lots of midges popping, but the wind has deterred all but a few small isolated pockets of dry fly action. The streamer bite has been getting a hotter. The rainbows are starting to look a little chunkier and feed up.
Warm weather this week should keep the fish in a feeding pattern.
