Fishing Report

The past few days has definately reminded me that I have the pleasure to fish and just plain enjoy one of the best trout streams in the United States. The rainbow spawn is starting to wind down, but I hear daily about the big ones that got away. A frustration any fisherman can sympathize with and hopefully laugh at. Yesterday seemed like everyone on the river was doing well on a variety of techniques. The hot flies have been ice shrimp, egg patterns, wd-40s, scuds, woolly buggers, and soft hackles are producing a lot of fish. Also cracklebacks are definately an honerable mention for the past couple days. The water has been shut down for the past few days making the water easy to navigate with a pair of waders. Today on our guide trip we did fantastic. With the weather forecast looking better for this next week we should see some beautiful weather to go with the great fishing. So get out of the house and come enjoy one the best trout streams in the US….enjoy our little slice of trout heaven!!!!

Fishing Report

The water has been down the past few days giving all of us fisherman a great opportunity to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather we are having. The rainbows have been into their second spawning run so we have been seeing some huge rainbows. The fishing as far as numbers of fish has been flat out impressive. The fish have been feeding on our new ice shrimp, egg patterns, soft hackles, and small midges. I don’t like to use 7X when the big spawners are around, but it has been working much better with the water off. Oh yeah another thing to try would be woolly buggers. I’ve heard several reports from guys off the stream that had good luck with them today.

I hope some of you fisherman that needed a quick update on conditions got what you needed. If not feel free to contact us at the shop for any other questions you may have.
