PM Fishing Report

Fishing on the PM has been challenging the last couple days. Mother nature threw a little bit of everything at us with low clear water, sunny skies, and rain stroms. Presentation was a big part of success; tucking hoppers inches from wood piles with a twitch or two in the sun, and getting streamers and skunks down deep in pocket water in the rain. All sorts of foamy bugs were working, with smaller stuff being the best in the sun and smaller streamers getting it done subsurface. Look for rain in the forcast for the rest of the week and water levels to rise and color up a bit. The Streamer bite should get better so keep an eye on the fronts coming through and pick your windows.

Not much sign of the Mighty King yet, but a few have been seen milling around so get those streamer rods ready because it will be here before you know it!

See ya out there,
