Sun Valley Fishing Report - July 29, 2016
The Big Wood River is a great place to be on a hot day. The shady canopy always offers anglers a respite from the sun. The best way to stay cool though is to fish Patagonia style. Meaning fish early and later.
The moment it is light enough to move about the river is the moment you want to be fishing. Start your day with Streamers or Hoppers as you await the morning hatches. This is a good time to fill your lungs with cool morning air and let it into your pores. Trico action starts after the first rays of sun hit the water and the air temperatures get to 70 degrees.
Siesta and lunch are the second activity of the day while the temperatures climb and the fish also go into a "siesta" mode.
Start your day back up in the early evening. Again start with Hoppers and have your Caddis and Rusty Spinners ready for the evening rise. If you've saved enough energy and your feeling really fishy, head to the Creek with your Mouse Flies!
