E-Quickie Report #13


Well, I officially declare it is Summertime!...even though it chronologically doesn't start until June 21.
5/31--- "...Going fishing right now…no consistent rise activity yet. Bugs are starting to emerge. LT being lowered…thus far indi-fishing is the most productive…but can change quickly….Everyone on the Green Drake watch now".
 

6/2---“…been busy guiding/instructing…openings for some personal “scout-fishing”…in three short sessions totaling about six hours  I’ve hooked 8 and netted 4; 13”-19” RB’s…the 19” ate a #20 RLPT Copper John trailing #16 PMD Cripple. The latter fooled the 13” RB…3 of the 4 lost were 20"-plus, indo-deep nymphing and they were all lost…a couple with spectacular leaps…lots of lead…Flesh Juan and #18 JUJU nymph...” 
 6/3---“…on the Green Drake watch at dusk…didn’t see any.
A few caddis in two different sizes  (18 & 14), Little Yellow Stones and a tiny crème-colored mayfly dun…no rising fish…"

6/6---"Well, it was better about 10 days ago before we got this warming trend. Nevertheless trout are being stuck…no numbers.  Largest fish…a couple of 18”-19” RB’s…no big browns…to 14”. Still no consistent rises to bugs and we’re still looking for the Green Drake (…can be here any day). Caddis are starting, PMD’s, Little Yellow Stones, Crane flies, fading BWO’s and few midges.  Mosquitos have become an issue in the LT Meadow...so bad a fishing buddy had to leave they were so ferocious..."
You may hit it right. BT water is warming; got a 63 between Prosser and Boca yesterday. The BT will be very warm soon. Thunder right now...and rain (4PM…Thursday)

6/7--- "…64 degrees along Glenshire at 3 PM…indicator nymphing  with 3-4 BB…#12 Prince and #16 BHFBPT proved effective today…still few bugs in flight...Occasionally we're moving a trout to the surface; searching with a #10 Black Ant or a #14 Olive Elk Hair Caddis. We're now into a summer mode and I may be guiding "split-days" to optimize best opportunities for clients”.
NOTE: I've reviewed my past E-Quickie Reports...I now have  the # sequence correct.
