Flows had remained high last week on the North Fork of the Stanislaus, but with the weather cooling down they are rapidly starting to drop to a more fishable level. Even with the high flows fishing has been fair. Nymphing is the way to go but with the dropping flows dry fly fishing should start picking up. The river should fish well through the fall, if flows keep tapering off.
Fly fishing should start picking up in Lake Alpine as the weather cools. Late September through October are usually productive months as cool weather tends to bring the fish into shallow water. Sinking lines and stripping streamer are the way to go.
Now that the road is back open after the fire, fishing is doing well on Heenan Lake, intermediate or full sinking lines are the way to go, with good numbers of fish being caught stripping streamers and prince nymphs. Heenan Lake is open Friday through Sunday until the end of October and is a great lake for a chance at a big Cutthroat..
Keep checking in for more updates and make sure to stop by The Trout Spot in Arnold for all of your fly fishing needs.
