Ruby River Fishing Report
The Ruby is a nice option in the mid summer months and into early fall. The water is at a great level right now keeping the fish in a variety of water types. Below the dam the nymph fishing is best with smaller technical spring creek style patterns on lighter fluorocarbon tippet. Small hopper patterns in the faster water can make for some explosive strikes if you find a willing fish.
The Month Ahead:
The Ruby is a very fun early autumn option. Visiting anglers really drop off in numbers and the river doesn’t see much pressure. Browns start to become less moody and the catch rates become a bit more predictable. Cloudy days can produce some dry fly action over early baetis mayflies and small streamers can start to do some damage.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Ruby is a nice smaller wade option in October. The browns get aggressive and the streamer fishing can be solid for medium sized trout up to 20”.
