The Ruby is a nice option in the mid summer months. The water is at a great level right now keeping the fish in a variety of water types. Below the dam the nymph fishing is best with smaller technical spring creek style patterns on lighter fluorocarbon tippet. Small hopper patterns in the faster water can make for some explosive strikes if you find a willing fish.
The Month Ahead:
The Ruby will be in a midsummer mode all the way into September. In the fall the fishing is often consistently good with smaller technical nymphs and the occasional hopper action.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Ruby is a nice smaller wade option in October. The browns get aggressive and the streamer fishing can be solid for medium sized trout up to 20”.
