Yep, this is the best time of year to fish this creek. There are abundant mayflies in the morning with great trico spinner falls, and the afternoon caddis hatch is amazing. I went to school up there in Bellingham and moved back to Lake Tahoe which is about 2 hours away. If any of you get down to this area set aside time for this creek, you'll be impressed. There is quite a bit of pressure, but the persistant angler can be very successful. There is also a private ranch that is dry fly only and has reasonable rates.
