MIRACLE MILE FLY FISHING, watch out for redds

Current CFS.

  • The Grey Reef is at 500 CFS.
  • The Miracle Mile is at 545 CFS
  • Fremont Canyon is AT 80 CFS

Caddis nymphs and BWO nymphs have been very productive. Streamers have been catching a ton of fish. Flows are pretty steady and there is a lot of places to wade fish. Get out there!

Watch out for redds! We all love catching browns, but if a fish is pulled of a redd, or if a redd is disturbed, even a single one, many brown trout will never hatch. Respect the trout. Fish where they feed, not where they breed.


Midges, Caddis and BWOs are top choices for nymphing.

  • Midges (Pal, McGrubber, Mayhem) Size 18-20
