The steams are low and gin clear in my neck of the woods. Water temp was around 65 so I got out early. Nothing at all coming off the water but I did see some just below and at the surface takes so I didn't weight my small ginger PT nymph dropper. Most takes were on that fly but a few were on the thunderhead dry. I totaled around 10 fish in about 3 hours and had several fish come up and refuse. The water was soooo clear and not moving fast so they had a great look at each offering. Lots of fun. I got a few neat pics and videos with the go pro. I'll post some of the videos on PFF FB soon but here are the still pictures.

Nice !!!! WE got a little rain last night ,but not enough to put much into the creeks. And yes the creeks are low and gin clear with no bug activity.

Good work, Rob!

Same stream conditions here as JT said. I'm probably gonna focus on smallies, largemouth, and panfish for a while.Gonna leave my brookies alone at present.

Sounds like a good day anyway.

I guess it's time to hit the tailwaters. Always some bug activity there.

Actually, I'm more likely to fish some local warm waters for bass and bream. July and Aug. are rough on trout.
