What to Expect in July

How to use this section.


Summer steelhead come in two surges on this river, one early in the season and one later. July is an in-between time. At the beginning of the month, look for some fish in the McIver to Barton area. Late in July, the second surge should arrive. When that event happens, fishing should improve downstream from Barton.

As the river becomes low and clear, smaller flies should work best. Purple and blue flies are good choices, such as the Purple Peril, Streetwalker, Freight Train, etc. Your best bet for traditional tactics is when the light is low --right at dawn or dusk. You can also attach your fly with a riffle hitch and skate it across the surface. During the day, indicator tactics with a Rubber Legs or Kaufmanns Stonefly might pick up a fish.

For more on July tactics and flies, see the Rivers in General forecast
