General Fishing Report - Fall is here and the lakes are starting to cool down. Nymph and streamer action has been increasing. There has been no winter kill reported this season. Fishing in the mornings and later in the evenings produces the best results, mostly using Midges and Nymphs. Dry flies to use include Streamers, Wooly Buggers, Ants, and Adams Paracutes.
