The heat is cranking up in the valley for midsummer, it’s great to spend days on the cool river, catching shade up high on the river system from the towering pines and firs.  Cottonwood takes over near Darby, mixed with large ponderosa pines that provide good shade and fish refuge to the main river.  We’re starting to get out earlier and earlier to beat the heat, and finding good fishing to boot.  Upriver we can take our time a bit more as that water is so cold it takes a while for the bugs and trout to get active, even on the hottest days.
