We don't know if you've heard, but Summer Ain't Over! We're still experiencing some classic late summer fishing throughout the state. It's Feast or Famine when it comes to fly size. You're either throwing big hoppers or small tricos. For the freestones, it should be hopper-dropper season into October. For our tailwaters, hopper-droppers, trico dries are the ticket up top. Subsurface, we're starting to see small flies take more fish with small midges, mayflies and blue-winged olives ruling the day.
We saw some strange storms around South Park cause flash flooding along the Dream this week. This has also resulted in bumps inflows through 11 Mile. It's still too early to say what's in store for the Dream, but it certainly caused some road damage and it will be interesting to see what's in store for the fishery as summer comes to a close.
