The fishing has been good so far this August. The water is nice and cool and there are still plenty of fish around. It's been a while since the last stocking so the fish that are still there are getting tougher to catch. Also it's been pretty busy so some runs have seen allot of pressure.

I've been having to look around more for fish that are willing to bite. Allot of them are hanging around in tough to get to places. With all the downed tree's from the storm there are more places for them to seek cover.

I've also needed a perfect drift to get any bites. Some will follow the fly for a while or nub it 2 or 3 times before biting. Any drag at all and I get refusals.

Overall it has been fun fishing. Challenging, but not too difficult.
