Water temps are very high
The Trout are struggling to stay alive
Please leave them alone.
Thank you for your consideration

Trapper,

Is this normal? This is my first summer paying attention to the area, just curious
You can study hard, get straight As, go to an ivy league school, become a doctor, a physicist, a billionaire investor… You can work out, run triathlons, be an olympian, have six pack abs… BUT if you don’t use your brains and your body to become a better fly fisher, none of that other junk matters. Snap It!

Kinda normal for the wf and other larger streams in this area.

Fish the smaller streams toward the headwater springs.

Thanks Trapper, I was going to fish tomorrow but the temps are definitely up. Glad to hear some solid confirmation and figured it was the case. Maybe Sunday , if it cools down. Take it easy folks and tie some fliesSmile
I enjoy trout.They are never disappointing company. They like the things I like - clean mountain streams , swift moving water, wildness. - Henry Middleton

There are streams that are fishable yet, you just need to stay away from the downstream portions and larger streams. The west fork was warming on Saturday when we fished it at about 65 degrees, but we hit Camp on the way home and it was running about 6 degrees cooler at 1:00 PM. I heard that Reads and some others were still decent temp wise, so you can find water to fish, just may need to skip a stream or 2 along the way.
