  • Nymphing at it’s Finest! (5/21/2018)

    Fishing has been great on all three tailwaters lately, fish are in the “buggy” mood! We did have a storm that blew out the Reef on friday, but the clarity is already back to normal all the way down to Sechrist. Flows on the Reef have been stable for a while now and we haven’t heard anything about a change. As mentioned in our last report, fish have really been keying in on the baetis (BWO) hatch. Fishing shorter, lighter mini-rigs on the inside edges and seams has been producing.

    Miracle Mile- 2,000 CFS- as usual the san juan worm has been owrking well out there, but a lot of fish are eating bugs too. BH Barrs Emerger, RS2 in chocolate or grey, and the pal have been picking up some really nice fish.

    Fremont- 130 CFS- The flows have increased today and that is a very good thing, a little more water will open up every run. These fish have been eating bugs like crazy, nymphing and swinging baetis patterns has been awesome. You can even sight nymph feeding fish. This has also been the best area for some dry fly action!

    Grey Reef- 2,500 fishing has been just nuts on the Reef. We’ve even been seeing a good number of brown trout! Like mention earlier mini rigging with bugs has been a great option producing big, healthy fish, Juju baetis, All day May, PAL, RS2’s, and the Redneck have all been on the menu.

    ***We still have some cottages and guided trips available for Memorial day weekend and week. Give us a call and lets get on the water!
