  • Winter Fishing is on Fire! (1/15/2019)

    Fishing has been excellent the past few weeks, both nymphing and with streamers! Fish are really healthy, fighting hard, and plentiful,  and with hardly any crowds this time of year you feel like you have the river to yourself. That’s why winter is one of our favorite times to get out and fish. Also a great time to take advantage of our shoulder season package; 2 nights in a Cottage and 1 FULL day of fishing for 2 anglers for $600!!!

    Grey Reef-Lusby 500 CFS- Fishing has been excellent. Focus on the slower, deeper water if there’s not a hatch going on. Reef Worms, LAZY, PAL’s, leeches, and RS2’s have been our best nymphs fishing them a little deeper and heavier this time of year. When midges start popping try moving your flies up in the water column and fish closer to the top of the run or on the edges. We can get some really good midges hatches in the winter and even some dry fly action on the right day. Streamer fishing has been top notch, keep the fly moving as slow as possible even try dead drifting them. Goldies, rusty trombones, and Mini dungeons are all working!

    Fremont/Cardwell-400 CFS- While the flows are still higher than normal the fishing has been great. Just focus on the slowest water you can find. All of the the long runs in the Meadow have been fishing well in the last 2/3 of the run. Leeches, annelids, scuds, and midges have all been working well.

    Miracle MIle- 500 CFS- Fishing has been pretty good out there with some days being better than others. Swinging streamers this time of year can be a really fun way to catch them right now. The Reefs Goldie, Rusty Trombone, Galloups Dungeons, Peanut Envys, and laser legal have been go-tos!
