The Ruby has been hit or miss for us in the early fall but things seemed to have stabilized and it is fishing well again. The water is low and the fish are concentrated in the deeper runs. The browns are moving and this is a fun fishery to strip streamers for medium sized trout. The baetis hatch can also bring some fish up on a cloudy day.
The Month Ahead:
Streamers and nymphs will be the main game once mid to late November arrives.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Ruby is a pretty decent winter fishery. Nymphing is the staple in the early winter but by February you can get a decent rise over the midge hatch.
