FLY FISHING -- It's summer and anglers are making and executing all sorts of travel plans related to the pursuit of fish.
But savvy fly fishers don't consider it down time to be here in Spokane. Here's a report from Mike Berube of the Spokane Fly Fishers from his Spokane River float-fishing trip on Friday:
A friend and Ihad a great float yesterday. Put in just below Monroe St Bridge at about 6AM and took out at TJ Meenach Bridge at about 1PM. River is fishing great. The fish were primarily at the end of riffles and loved any type of brownish olive streamer. I fished a sz 6 woolhead sculpin on a sink tip. All were in the 12-14" range with a couple to 20". Nymping was productive also.
Hard to beat a Pat's Rubber Legs with a Lightning Bug dropper on the Spokane.
Wading to some of the really good holes should be better in about a week if it continues to drop.
