Best fly patterns for the week: Another week with limited generation has resulted in some very good fly fishing. Scuds, sow bugs and G bugs have been dominate patterns. Natural colors like ginger, plum and grey have all been effective.

Best spinning tackle: Limited generation has meant the drift bite has been dominate; Gulp and Power eggs in orange, chartreuse and white and live inflated crawlers have been the productive. When the current is on Zig Jigs, Little Cleos and Panther Martins have been effective.
