As we roll through the dog days of summer and maybe start to think about the season ahead, there is plenty of good fishing opportunities around the state.
Locally the bass fishing has been pretty good, despite the low water on the Grand River, Rogue River, and Flat River. Bite windows have been most consistent early in the morning and late in the evening on top water flies (zudbubblers, gurglers, mr wigglys, boogle bugs, etc). As the sun comes up, focusing on deep subsurface presentations have produced some consistent bites.
Despite the low water, nymphing has been productive for trout as well in our northern rivers that are running a bit cooler. Small flies, light tippet, and stealthy presentations have rewarded some nice fish in the past week.
