Time to bring out the 3wt, Gore Creek is fishin’ good. A slight stain helps the fisherman stay hidden and also has them eating bigger bugs. Dry droppers with Purple (yes, purple) Parachute flies have been catching fish especially if you’re dredging a Rainbow Warrior or chocolate thunder below it. Respect private property, tread lightly and don’t fish to spawners please.
