Trout: Lower river From Leaburg Dam down to the confluence.   Nymph fishing with Fox Squirrel and a BH Flashback PT has worked quite well.  We have been picking up some nice native rainbow and cutthroat.  Some decent dry fly fishing in the evening.  We have seen a few October Caddis out and about.

Steelhead: The Salmon in the river are spawning and the Steelhead are eating eggs and becoming active with the cooler water temps. Try using Clown Eggs, Cabellero Eggs, and other various egg patterns. If your into swinging flies then try Purple Articulated Leeches, Purple Perils, Summer Runs and Fly Dejour.

Best surface patterns:   Royal Wulffs (Sz #12-16), Tan, Olive, Brown Elk Hair Caddis #12-14,  Olive Stimulators #14, Yellow Stimulators #14, PMD duns #14-18, October Caddis #8, Adams #14-16, Mahogany Duns #14-16.

Best nymph patterns:  BH Fox Squirrel nymphs 12-14, GB Flashback Pheasant Tail Nymphs #14-18,  Gray soft hackle #14-16, Green bodied soft hackle #12-14,  GB FB Hare's Ear Nymph #10-14, Prince Nymphs #12-18, Zug Bug #12-16, Cased Caddis#14-16,  Golden Stones #6-10, October caddis larva #8, October Caddis pupa #8.
