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.
The Month Ahead:
The Ruby will be a nice wade fishing option late into October. Streamers will be more and more effective as the fall progresses and some nice medium sized browns can be taken.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Ruby can be a good option in the winter months as long as the wind isn’t blowing too hard. It might not be worth a long drive but if you are in the area bring a rod along. Streamers can fish well very late into the fall and later in the winter it turns into a nymphing game. Dry fly action on midges will produce in the late winter.
