The Ruby is fishing well and daily hatches of caddis, yellow sallies and pale morning duns are encouraging trout to feed in the morning and early afternoon. After the hatches wrap up the fishing slows down dramatically.
The Month Ahead:
Hatches will be winding down soon. In mid-summer trout will become opportunistic and can be enticed with hoppers or nymph rigs. Smaller, more technical nymphs will produce well but don’t discount a streamer in low light hours.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Ruby is a decent fall option. Flows tend to be low but water temps remain good all day in September and October. The Ruby can be fickle and one day can produce nice action while the next can be slow. Stripping a small streamer in low light hours in the fall can produce some nice medium sized browns.
