What to Expect in July

How to use this section.

Steelhead fishing will keep getting better throughout July. As the canyon heats up, focus your efforts on the low-light times of day. Be on the water at the earliest light for safe wading, and beat the heat and the crowds. Don't wear yourself out during the bright, hot times of the day--take a siesta and hit the river again in the evening. On the other hand, if it's cloudy you can have good fishing all day.

Standard patterns such as Muddlers, Green Butt Skunks, Freight Trains, etc. work well here. A sink-tip line is okay, but shouldn't be necessary at this time of year.

Fish should soon be spread throughout the fly water. Don't ignore the stretch above Steamboat, especially near the end of the month. The casting is more difficult, but the crowds are reduced.
