Well, after another wet week, we finally have some hexes!  The long wait is over!!!  The river is still flowing higher then normal with a good stain.  The upper river is clearing and dropping, but the middle and lower sections are taking their time.  Check clearance at Indian Bridge if you are floating down to it.  Be safe and smart.

I do not have a lot of time for a detailed report.  Small to medium sized streamers have been working when we have overcast conditions.  Bouncing stones and attractor patterns when sunny or at dusk has generated some awesome strikes (and misses).  If you are chasing the hatch please respect other anglers and their night vision (try to sparingly use light and never white lights).

The shop is loaded up with hex patterns, glow lines, bug dope, leaders…ect.  Please swing by to stock up on your fishing supplies.  Feel free to give us a call for up to date info…good luck out there and enjoy your time on the river.  I am very excited for the next couple weeks!
