This month of July has been amazing! Couldn't be any happier with the success that "The Shack" is having. Every guide trip that has gone out this year has caught many fish per person! We don't guarantee fish but we work really hard to increase your chances. To top off our extremely happy clients, the dry fly action has been phenomenal on the Cimarron River. Grasshoppers (my favorite), Adams, H&L variant, Moth-man, Royal Wulff, Caddis, Stimulator, BWO, ants, beetles, and so much more! Pick your pattern and get on the water! The Red River is finally coming down from all the run-off and rain we have had so fishing has been picking up a lot on that side of the mountain!

Eagle Nest Lake: Fishing continued to be very good using worms for perch. Anglers did well from the bank and from anchored boats. Fishing for trout was a bit sporadic but some anglers did well trolling Platte River specials with Power Bait, pathermartin #6, kokanee trolls. I have seen 3 pike landed this month so far, one on a brown predator fly and the others on mepps #5. Carp on the fly has slowed down during the day time hours but is still productive in the evening and morning with back stabbers and jamies crazy carper.

Cimarron River: Stream flow on Monday near Cimarron was 88 cfs. Fishing was fair using prince nymphs, pheasant tails, hares ear, emeregers, grass hoppers adams, BWOs' for trout.

Fishing is good using Chonomids, emergers, egg pattern, glass duck, and small pheasant tails.
