Flows on the West have been bumped. There is a bit of snot in the water so subsurface fishing on the upper part of the river will be difficult.  The afternoon Sulphur hatch has been early, starting around 9:30 am.  Hatching:   BWO #16-20 Sulphurs #14-18 Tan Caddis #16 – 18 Cahills #12-14 Isonychia #10 […]

Reports from the mid to lower West have been decent. Anglers are finding less bugs, but also much less people. You wont get that strong mid day Sulphur hatch, but the evenings have been productive. Nymphing and swinging is much easier on the mid to lower river due to the lack of algae. Hatching:   […]
