Silver Creek Update 08/24/2011

Glassy water – sporadic feeder in about 2 feet of water right below an over hanging bush. Long leader – small 3/4 spent baetis and one cast to not screw it up. Luckily my knots held and one chunk of a fish. Nice job to my good friend Cecil.

This week is supposed to be a lot warmer so during the heat of the day you need to be hunting those fish down. The hopper bite is on and there is some different dry-dry combos that have been working as well. Double down on different sized grasshoppers, hopper-beetle duos, or find your own combination of crunchy terrestrials.

Mornings are still about the same as the past week. Tricos – pseudos and baetis – callibaetis spinners and nymphing in the deeper slots. Still a great time to be down there and I’ll see you down there tomorrow.
