Hoping everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend!  The river is now down to 500 cfs.  This weekend we had boats spread from the Reef to Robertson Road.  A small storm this weekend caused some discoloration issues below Lusby, but we should start to see it be on the mend.  The boats that went low came back with reports of great fishing and not much moss to contend with.  The upper river continues to fish with more floating and standing vegetation you just have to move around and find your fishing lanes.  With the cooler temps that we have experienced lately, the fishing should only continue to improve.

We had boats spread out from the Reef to Sechrist.  Reports came back with fairly consistent fishing for August.  The moss appears to more of issue above Lusby and gradually decrease the lower you go.  Top bugs of have been cdc pmd’s, foam post Rs2′s, leeches and some caddis stuff.  Cooler weather has blessed us the last few days making the dog days of summer a little bit better.  Cooler temps with chances of ran are in the forecast for the next few days.

Not much has changed as far as the fishing.  Flows are reduced to 1,500 at the Reef with clearing water and floating moss.  Top bugs have been pheasant tails, leeches, foam post rs2′s, crayfish, and caddis stuff.  The upper river is on the mend but floating and standing moss have made it difficult to get clean drifts.  Government Bridge down the river is still cloudy but much less floaties to contend with.  Cooler weather is in the forecast with temps possibly dropping into the 70′s.

Everything is on the mend and so is the fishing!  Water clarity continues to improve.  Top bugs have been leeches in brown and black, red and purple san juans, pmd stuff along with various caddis patterns as well.  Moss and “floaties” are starting to become a problem up top with the reduced flows and warmer conditions.  We have boats out the next few days and will keep you posted as reports come in.

Sorry for the lack of posts as of late.  August is hear and it appears the flows are not.  As of this morning the Grey Reef flows have been reduced to 1,700 cfs.  Not quite sure for the low flows so early in the month.  Once we find out more info we will keep you posted.

Fishing as of late has been great in the morning with tricos, pmds, and caddis stuff.  The trico spinner fall has been fairly consistent with pods of fish every morning.  Floaties are starting to become an issue along with more moss growth as well.  Given the time of year the river is great shape and fishing isn’t to bad either.
