Ditch Witch Tan
The Ditch Witch in tan is a great streamer for the Mile

Current CFS.

  • The Grey Reef is at 500 CFS.
  • The Miracle Mile is at 555 CFS
  • Fremont Canyon is at 520 CFS

Streamers, midges and eggs are taking fish. The Miracle Mile is fishing very well, especially for those throwing streamers.

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.
