Fishing Report 05/01/2018

May 1st is here and with it comes great weather and good fishing. We have not yet received our normal April rain showers, but I’m sure they are on the way. Things on the river have been getting buggier and buggier everyday. Switching from your rockworm, leech, and egg rig too some beatis, bwo, and midge patterns may reward you. The weather for the week looks variable in the beginning with some rain but tapers off to a good finish with Saturday looking the best.


Fishing has been productive with eggs being a go to pattern. Leeches,  Annelids,  Midges, Beatis, and Bwo have also been very productive as well. Rigs (6-6.5 feet) having been working well with a B or BB weight.
