Ruby River Fishing Report
Flows on the Ruby are now around 300 cfs, providing for some great wade fishing opportunities as an alternative to other larger rivers in the area. Look for dry fly opportunities in the form of caddis and PMDs. Keep a few small to medium sized streamers on hand as well for those deeper cut banks.
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 emmergers 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.
