Pale morning duns should be hatching in the evening. Caddis hatches are usually strong in July, but fade in August. Look for Callibaetis hatches in the slow section from midday through evening. Midges should also be active in the evening all month. During the day, you'll do best to work a size 18 nymph near the bottom, or try a red, tan, or orange San Juan Worm . . . or take a nap until evening.

Expect mahogany duns to start hatching later in the month.

Irrigation season can render this river high and cold.
