 Ruby River Fishing Report

Current Conditions:
The Ruby is a nice option in the early summer with lots of pale morning duns to keep trout well fed. The fishing is often subsurface below the dam but if you have some nice cloud cover it can result in a lot of heads. Fishing a small streamer in the mornings also can turn a lot of trout. Nymphing is very productive with worms, small streamers and pmd emergers.

The Month Ahead:
The Ruby becomes less consistent in late July and early August with a banner day followed by a really tough one for no explainable reason. Water temps are good near the dam most of the summer but expect early morning fishing to out produce other times of the day.

Long Term Fishing Forecast: 
The Ruby is a good option all summer long. Once we get into the heart of the summer the river sees more traffic on the public sections and fishing can be less consistent but you can still have some banner days.
