Owyhee River Report

Report Date:

Fish have mostly wrapped up their fall spawn, but please still stay away from walking through the riffles as the eggs won't hatch for another couple months and you take the chance of crushing them! Look for risers in the flats mostly taking midges or the occasional BWO hatch Call our Boise Fly Shop at (208) 939-6065 to find out the latest info on the Owyhee River and to Book a Guided Trip.
