Yellow Breeches Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Otherwise, watch for tricos followed by small caddis and blue winged olives during morning hours and sporadic hatches right at dark. Pitch assorted terestrials along bankside vegetation. Nymphs are still (yes, still) the best bet but slapping a bobber down on the trout now will likely send them scurrying. Use a long leader with a single or double bead head nymph rig and a tiny indicator or the New Zealand wool indicator and stay back from the selected spots.

Seven-day forecast 

Water is pretty low but not terribly so. The rains of Sunday/Monday didn't hit the Breeches too hard. It was a bit cloudy on Monday but should be back to gin clear by now. We have dodged some of the hottest weather of the season but are not out of the woods yet. Watch water temperatures on warm days. If they are over 65 degrees, find colder water or go mow the lawn. Things look pretty good through the weekend with September-like weather on tap.
