Trouts Guide Service Report: 6/16
The rivers remain high, while our guide's nets remain full!
It's proving to be an interesting month around here so far. "Normally" (whatever that means) by now you'd expect rivers to hopefully be trending downward from a CFS point of view, and summer fishing to be in full swing. And while summer fishing is here (or at least technically will be in 5 days from a calendar perspective) it doesn't necessarily feel like it out on the water. The combo of rain continuing to fall paired with melting snow has all of our home rivers continuing to rise- although I'm optimistic we are peaking as we speak. And while we no rivers are totally unfishable, it is certainly causing our guide's to have to get creative on many of our recent trips. (Didn't I recently write something about using these conditions to make you a better angler anyway?) As of this writing, Deckers is over 2000cfs, the Dream Stream near 800cfs, and the Blue River shows 1590cfs. However as you'll see in the pictures below, we had trips on all these waters over the past few days and the fishing has remained strong. While there's been a bunch of interesting/comical fish-landings, a few slips in the mud (by both guides and clients), and no shortage of fish hitting mid-river and charging downstream never to be seen again, it's nonetheless been another great week on the water.
