Dry Fly Fishing Has Been Fantastic

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


A great area to fish with the dry weather hanging around. Dry fly fishing is fantastic here now, and if this is your game, you need to fish here. Small midges and a larger population of mayflies are now showing. The trout here are eager to eat all day long, so no rush to get here early especially since the cold doesn’t subside until mid morning. Use smaller nymphs in the deeper sections to get to the larger trout.

Best Flies: Flashback PT’s #16-#20, Tricos Spinners #20-22, SD Crawlers in Red #14, Copper Tiger Midges #18-20, and #18 Assassin Dark, Tangerine Opaque, Kiwi Flash, and Apricot Flash Otter Eggs have been excellent.
