St. Joe River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The Joe has continued to fish well and the cooler weather will help dramatically. I still like fishing higher up the river at these flows, but floating can still be done if you don't mind dragging in some spots. Small dries in the flats and slower seams and a bigger bug with a small dropper thru the pocket water are great ways to prospect. A streamer thru the boulder gardens and white water never hurt either.

Seven-day forecast 

The cooler days and longer nights should start getting the fish active again. Hopefully a few more hatches come out, so start looking for more caddis, pmd's, mahoganies, and maybe even some spruce moths. Could use more rain, but cooler temps are great!
