The river is in excellent condition. Flows are at prime fall levels and the cool overnight temperatures have kept the trout happy. Fishing mid-day will continue to be good until the cold really sets in. Insects are abundant with the amount of water we’ve seen over the last three seasons. Spin fisherman have been doing well around the parks for hatchery trout. Depending on where you’re at on the river, there have been some good caddis hatches and a few pale mayflies still hatching throughout the day. E/C caddis, yellow elk hair caddis, and parachute orange dry flies have been productive. Nymph fishing continues to be the best method for numbers but streamers are going to be the best bet for the real big fish this Fall.
