Great Fishing for August


We have had perfect fishing weather lately aside from the bright sun.  These cool nights have been perfect for water temps across the board and we've gotten plenty of reports lately from anglers having good success on our local fisheries.  We're looking at a warmup next week with daytime temps back into the 80's, but nights will still be in the 50's which will keep water temps where we want'em.  We had a relatively small emergence of flying ants last week when air temps spiked, but it was short-lived.  We're in the midst of Isonychia time, so zug bugs and larger princes should be in your box.  Most reports are of fish taken on the swing which is typical for this time of year.  Hopper/droppers and dry/droppers are great rigs to be throwing as well.  A prince under a hopper on these breezy August days can be killer! 
We've been getting some fishing reports and photos from campers that attended GMFFC which has been awesome!  This morning I got the following message and photo above from one of our campers...
 
"Hey Chris, thanks for teaching me so much at camp. I have been doing lots of fishing and my bro recently started fly fishing so i taught him a lot since camp and it was a blast! He is now very into fishing too. Hope i can find a way to go back next year because that was probably the highlight of the summer.
