TRIP SUMMARY

Late season fishing on the Blue is here. Flows are about as low as they will get for the season (59.2), but fish can absolutely still be found. Most of the deeper holes have turned into shallow runs, but lighter tippet, lower depths and smaller flies can be a ticket for success. Todays #1 fly was a small size 20 mysis shrimp. The standard below the dam is usually worms, eggs and shrimp but the only producing fly today was the shrimp. Farther down on the blue small baetis and midges will usually do the trick. Weather was pretty decent, a high of about 35 in the mid afternoon quickly dropped after the sun went down around 4pm. My recommendation is to get an earlier start at around 9 or 10 and plan to be off the water by about 3. With that said the colder weather is thinning the crowds which is always a good thing, especially when fishing right in town, so it can be hard to leave with more open space available.
