UPPER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
REPORTING FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 18th to 25th, 2022
WATER TEMP AND CLARITY
The river was medium-high when we got here on June 2nd . The weather has been great and the river has done nothing but drop and get clearer daily. We averaged 48 to 51 degree water temps and the river is clear.
WOW!! What a great week of sunny weather!! We did a lot of swimming this week with sunny weather and temps in the 70s!! The swimming was brief as the water is still a little chilly.
HOT FLY OF THE WEEK
Anything we threw in the water worked this week.
