Tips for summer fishing on the Joe: Fish early, be done early, and continue to focus on riffles, shaded runs, banks, and color transitions. Terrestrial season is here so make sure to have hoppers, ants, and beetles in your fly box.
Big dry fly foam patterns continue to produce on the St Joe until the sun is high. Options when the sun is high, put on a dropper or switch to a nymph rig. Stone size 8 and small bead head size 14-16 are picking up fish.
