RHODE ISLAND: The Narragansett and Matunuck sides of Point Judith are producing school fish to 20 pounds and bulls are expected within two weeks; OG for next three weeks.
BLACK BASS: NEW YORK: Saranac dams and most Adirondack lakes starting to produce good fishing, with top-water bugs and plugs getting results. FG in Cape Vincent area for small-mouths a veraging 1� pounds. Chautauqua Lake SH, and surface plugs taking good smallmouths along shore and weedbeds in early morning and evening.
MISSOURI: FF in Lake Clearwater with most bass taken on live bait; OG as cooler weather puts more zip in fish. Eleven Point River L, C, FG with most fish taken on live bait and river-runt plugs; OG.
PENNSYLVANIA: Susquehanna H, D, FP as heavy rains muddied most mid-state waters; best bet is Juniata River. Conneaut Lake and French Creek ( Crawford County) producing nice bass despite high water, and with algae washed away the upper Allegheny River may be hot next week.
TROUT: WYOMING: FF with flies on Platte, Laramie, Green, Snake and Wind rivers; WT 55-60 as local experts favor grey and brown hackle patterns and hairwing Royal Coachman. For lake fishing, Boysen and Jackson lakes are best bets, with mackinaw rising in shallow water at Jackson.
IDAHO: FF on Salmon River and tributaries as stormy weather moves trout into deep pools; Ramshorn, Antelope and Grouse creeks producing good baskets on flies, with Renegade and Coachman best patterns; Lost River watershed near Mackay and Arco in excellent condition for dry-fly work; high mountain lakes still hot, with copper wobblers and Mickey Finn streamers working well when fished deep.
MONTANA: Unsettled weather making some days unproductive but in general fishing is excellent on the Yellowstone, Madison, Gallatin, Big Hole and Firehole rivers, with dry or wet fly, nymph or streamer.
BRITISH COLUMBIA: FG for sea-run cutthroats in most Vancouver Island rivers and estuaries; Fraser River bar fishing improving daily; Serpentine and Little Campbell (lower mainland) have heavy runs; coastal lakes generally producing well. OG for continued fine rainbow fishing at Lac La Jeune, Kamloops, Hihiume and most interior points.
