Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
Even though water temps and levels are still solid, fish are naturally starting to congregate in some of the deeper areas. This is always a trend we see in summer as flows get lower compared to April and May, and the trout become more susceptible to predators, chiefly birds of prey. Dropping down a few extra feet in the water gives them a bit more of a shield, as well as a shot in the arm from cooler water. The 10-day forecast looks pretty darn tame, but water temperature is something our trips, and all anglers, should start to monitor. The early mornings will be the best bet to avoid unsafe temperatures and cloudy/rainy days will be preferred over the bright sun. Once the streams hit 63-65 degrees, anglers should consider using heavier tippet and avoid handling the fish for any longer than necessary. The streams hitting 68+ degrees usually means it's time to hang it up for the day!
