UPPER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
REPORTING FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 3 TO AUGUST 10
WATER TEMP AND CLARITY
Water temps have been in the low to mid fifties and the river is very clear.
We did not see the sun much this week and we had several days of light intermittent rain. The river came up a few inches at the beginning of the week and then slowly dropped and it is now back to its lowest level of the season.
HOT FLY OF THE WEEK
We had some fun with skating dries for Dolly Varden this week and the bows were hot on the mouse patterns.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK
The highlight for me was having my daughter Sam in camp!We also saw Arctic Lynx, Caribou, Moose and a bunch of bears.
