Flows- 502 CFS
Fishing is improving dramatically through out the area after the rapid change in flows. With cooler nights caddis are thriving and hatches are happening in the afternoon. We are also seeing great trico action! Flies to use include, parachute adams, perdigon’s, birds nest caddis, Trico’s, size 18 or 20’s. With cooler days approaching streamer action is also starting! Look at using a tan/white ditch witch during the bright sunny days and streamers like the rusty trombone during cloudy days darker days.
Flows- 551 CFS
The Mile’s flows were dropped yesterday to 551 cfs which means a great time to wade! If going out similar patterns to the reef should work. With fall fast approaching the most exciting time to fish the mile is here as well. Keep an eye out for the big browns heading into the mile to spawn as well as kokanee.
Flows- 83 CFS
We are hearing positive reports in the Canyon. Flows are at operational levels and fair water clarity! Trico’s and Caddis, in the afternoon and tan/black leeches have been most productive on the nymph rig. Rock worms are also working well including dry’s so keep an eye out for any hatches. If you are debating on what parts to fish the faster sections of water seem to be fishing the best.
The Big Horn:
Flows- 1,317 CFS
The Big Horn has been fishing very well. Hoppers have been fishing well on the edges. Olive scuds and streamers have also been productive. Hares ear patterns and bird nest are great flies to add to the nymph rig as well if you are looking to head out!
