The brown trout have begun the spawn - please respect the beds and do not stand or anchor on them.

Midges are starting around 10am and  Pseudocloeon (tiny BWO's) hatches have been occurring around 11:00am daily.  These hatches are thickest on the upper A Section.  

The adjusting flows are tending to turn the fishing on and off.  The water temps are changing about 3 degrees during these adjustments.  Streamer fishing has been good - especially on the B Section.  River traffic is very light.  We have guides available most days this winter.  Your best bet is to watch the weather and pick the warmer days.

Dry Flies

Tiny dries on calm days.  On warm sunny days smaller Terrestrials will produce if you are persistent.   For tippet: Take the hook size of your fly, and divide it by 3. This gives an approximate “X” rating of the tippet.
