Merced Updates

The heavier run-off from earlier this year has prevented the water from getting too low. This has prevented the temps in the lower regions from getting too warm. Sure they are warm but the fish remain frisky. It appears, with cooling night temps, that the fish are increasingly frisky. The challenge is locating them. We recommend working hard at not staying put unless the fishing stays hot. Afternoon hopper fishing isn't a bad bet and the dusk spinner activity remains great. You can provoke fish even if you don't see them so practice stealth even on the bigger water. Last but not least, the recent Motor Fire has scarred the hillsides but not the fishing.
