The water level is dropping and the weed tops are very defined on the surface now.  Fish are still hanging in the channels, and midges, perch fry, assassins, and pheasant tails have been working well.  You will find a mix of fish sizes now as most fish are seeking out the cooler water coming from the creeks.  Assassins and Punk Perch hung under the indicators close to the weeds have been effective.  Midges still working well over the mud bottoms. #14-16 Level Crystal Leeches, #14-16 Assassins Light, #14-16 Parallel Punk Perch, #12-18 Copper Tiger Midges, and Zebra midges have been great and effective patterns.
