Aug 01 St. Peter's Fly Shop

With lower flows and warming water, the dry fly action has been picking up. You'll still find some PMD's and caddis coming off throughout the canyon along with hatches of Tricos and midges that fish will begin to focus in on. Fish have been sitting deeper on edges in the main runs and dual nymph rigs have been the most successful recently. Don't be afraid to throw streamers on those cloudy days and cover some water. Usaually double nymph rigs with a PMD and Caddis will be the way to go for those slow times of the day and then in the early afternoons and evenings you'll see hatches taking place. If you have any other questions on how to fish this particular stretch, give us a ring at the shop!
