We fished the river in Bechler Meadows Thursday. Purple camas bloom is at its peak. Fishing was tough considering the effort we put in. Water is quite low for this time of year, but some fish responded to wet flies. Good dry fly fishing should begin soon beginning with isoperla and PMD activity. Hopefully green drakes and brown drakes will appear next. And yes, mosquitoes are out in the usual good numbers making DEET a valuable commodity. Bring a raincoat because t-showers are common this time of year. We were hit by one that dropped air temps about 25 deg. F and made rain go sideways. So glad I was wearing a pair of Simms Goretex Pac-Lite pants to ward off wind and rain. What a terrific product for when weather acts up! Come in and look these over.
