The Upper has been steadily fishing well all summer long. Lots of people are pretty excited about streamer season and big lake run browns. It is still a little bit early for that, but it won’t be long! Some folks have been throwing big streamers and getting some action from bigger, colored up fish. Nymphing has been good on silver Lightning Bugs and Lil Spankers. A double nymph rig with a rubberlegs and one of those smaller nymphs would be a good bet. Try some smaller Baetis nymphs too. Dry fly fishing with Baetis has been pretty decent when you can find rising fish. Attractors and terrestrials are still working well also.

Reports from the Upper have been phenomenal, everything has been working as of late. It also has the best conditions after yesterdays storms. Dry fly fishing with small caddis patterns, purple haze, and your larger parachute adams have been producing great fish. They're still eating Chubbies and terrestrials in the afternoons. Nymphing your attractor nymphs such as lightning bugs, copper johns, nymphicators, and rubberlegs has been working great. Streamer fishing has been even better than dry fly and nymphing. Dead drifting sculpins with a nymph trailed has been the best setup, but fish are definitely chasing your bigger streamers in Olive/Black. Some fish have started to move up from the lake, so you may find a big brownie down low or up by Slide Inn/Reynolds. Definitely worth checking out this weekend. 8-mile to town has been bumpy so be prepared to hit some rocks.
