Brown trout and cowboy hats... they sort of go together. 
It's summer time... officially. But the thanks to a slow start we are still experiencing late spring conditions, which means the fishing is good, very good. Looking forward to the big bugs of summer; Iso's, Hex's, and Alder's will get ready to take center stage. Some cloudy and wet weather to finish the week should help to keep water temps and levels in good shape for some time to come.

This is the payback for a very wet spring that brought river levels to unimaginable levels when we should have been fishing on them.

Also, we have some good dates for July and August. Think poppers. Think ridiculously big streamers. Think aggressive fish that pull. Hard. Yup, we are talking about big river smallmouths. If you haven't gone green, you should. These fish don't disappoint, and will likely leave you wondering why you waited so long.

Sorry to hear about the extremely wet spring. I am looking forward to laying into a few small mouth myself. Such a good fight on the fly rod. Tight Lines.
