Just a “heads up” on fishing small streams higher up in any drainage. Many of these headwaters are now dropping to base level. This means larger fish will move downstream to find better overhead cover, deeper water that provides cooler temperatures, and better chances for in-stream food. We fished the McCoy Creek head waters yesterday and found this situation to be in progress. We did better downstream where deeper water held more trout to moderate sizes. PMDs and caddis provided mid-day and afternoon fare for foraging trout. Grasshoppers are beginning to populate stream sides here, but fish were yet to key on them big time. Be aware that thundershowers threaten to shorten time on the water this time of the season.
