The Mahogany Duns and Callibaetis are on the horizon for now

The Fly Shop

Report Date:

Manzanita is open now, some snow from last weekend lingers on the shore here and there. The early season fish are a little sluggish in the cold water, so fish slow presentations for best luck. Zebra Midges, Balanced Damsels and #14 - 16 PTs fished under indicators or on an I-Line are good methods right now. The Mahogany Duns and Callibaetis are on the horizon for now

Pay attention to the special regulations here, especially where you can and can't fish. Barbless hooks, artificial lures, catch and release. Make sure you inquire at the park entrance.
