August 31, 2016 Fishing report

Good Evening Everyone!

Another rain free day in the valley and I just came in from an early evening of dry-fly action out back! Flows are at 281 below Cheesman Dam, 318 in Trumbull, and about 310/315 in Decker’s. Lot’s of big Maylflies on the water this evening, with two fish taken with a BWO, extended body with the foam wing! Nothing was really rising when I got to the river’s edge, but on the fourth toss of my fly which I threw tight to the bank, brought up a nice brown, followed shortly after with a smaller cut-bow. Not having much time myself in the last few days to fish, I haven’t had the chance to try many new fly combinations, but I’m hoping to get out there tomorrow and through the weekend.  The conditions have remained solid, with morning Tricos coming off until about noon, mixed in with some BWO’S, and the hoppers are everywhere!  Seems like the moss situation is improving, but still be prepared to clean your flies often.

The holiday weekend is upon us, so if you’re planning to camp at any of the three first come first serve campsites in the Decker’s area, I would advise getting up here no later than Thursday afternoon. They tend to fill up quick and the two campgrounds that take reservations most likely are full too! You can check the availability by visiting If you are interested in renting a cabin for the holiday weekend, be sure to check out The Decker’s Country Store and Flies and Lies both have cabins available for rent year round.
