Low clear and in need of water. Streams are in summer mode with mid-day fishing very tough. Ants, beetles, long leaders, and light tippits. Evening window of topwater action about 45 min. long. Caddis drys with pupa trailers cast down and across might work. Move the fly! Buggers in black and olive. Looking for Tricos in the mornings? None yet, at least none that the fish are moving for. Smallmouth on the ST. Croix has been good and getting better.
