Silver Creek has been fishing well, Tricos & PMD's have been working

Idaho Angler

Report Date:

(154 cfs) - Silver Creek has been fishing well. The Tricos are "on", but many people are reporting that the best fishing has still been with Pale Morning Duns, even during the Trico Hatch. There has not been much talk of Callibaetis, but there still should be a few in the slower sections. Hoppers are producing fish, as well. This time of year necessitates smaller tippets and longer leaders, which can make for very challenging fishing. We don't have any fishing moratoriums in Idaho, yet. However, with the very warm weather we urge you to try to land the fish quickly, handle them carefully, and release them as quickly as humanly possible.
