Well, well... It's July already!
To start things off, the Dollies this year began early and they have just continued to be hungry. They now seem to be beginning their transition from creek estuaries back into freshwater. Try places like Cowee Creek, Salmon Creek, Montana Creek and Sheep Creek. The flies to use still varies from pink flies, such as the Humpy Hooker, and Karluk Shrimp, to egg patterns such as Glo- Bug- peachy king, Fish Emission Eggs- pink, bead patterns in realistic salmon egg colors in size 8mm and 10mm, and even some leech and nymph patterns like the Sculpzilla, BH Buggers, and Egg Sucking Stone.
As far as King fishing goes, we have heard through the rumor mill that people are still limiting out on Kings at Auke Creek and Fish Creek, they have just had to put in their time on the water. Fly colors have varied from pink to chartreuse to all black to all white. So, grab your head nets and hit the water!
We'd love to share your fishing photos, too! Send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
