Cedar River - June 7th, 2006
supplied by: The Avid Angler
RECORDED: 60 ° FISHING: Fair
The Cedar is very high right now. It is fishable and the water is clear, but it is very fast and not all spots are easily accessible or wadeable.
I fished with a friend for a few hours today and used mostly streamers while my buddy fished a dual nymph rig.
We caught a few fish with one trout to 15" in the mix, plus a smallmouth bass taken on a beldar bugger in yellow and brown. The trout was taken on a San Juan worm.
I recommend fishing heavy streamers steelhead style right now until the water drops a bit. Once it does, nymphing will become more of an option.
I have heard a few reports of decent dry fly action in the evening. Small mayflies (PMD's) and caddis have been the usual suspects at this time of day.
Streamers to fish include a Beldar Bugger, Dolly Lama and a rubberleg woolly bugger. Plan on using a fast sink tip and short leader.
