The Ruby is a nice option once flows stabilize and begin dropping. Flows are still on the high side but are not too far away from fishable levels so keep an eye on the hydrograph and once things drop below 350 cfs wading becomes easier.
The Month Ahead:
The Ruby should be a nice option in late June and there will be plenty of pmds and yellow sallies to get fish excited. If flows are below 400cfs at the dam and stable or on the drop this should be a green light. Nymphing worms trailed by pmd emergers is always productive. Hopper fishing is hit or miss but the relatively large average size of the trout here makes it really exciting when it “hits”.
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.
