Guide Justin Lyle and myself fish about 3/4’s of the West yesterday and had a stellar day. We fished primarily streamers and had good dry fly opportunities as well. Speaking with others who floated yesterday, it seems as if they had the same outcome we did. The Lower West was very muddy yesterday, and didn’t fish as well as the top. […]

We’ve been fishing the West these past few days, and to much of our relief its been fishing great. The streamer bite has been exceptionally well with dryfly action mixed in. Fortuneatly the spill is not effecting the fishery as we expected it wouldn’t. When the train derailed and the spill happened the West was around 6,000cfs, so it washed down and out fairly […]
