These bright, warm days make for tough daytime fishing on all streams, but on meadow streams in particular. So in such as Fall River Basin streams, Duck Creek ( see recent article), Gibbon River, and Slough Creek timbered reaches are likely to offer the best fishing. For Bechler River and Boundary Creek this means the forested reaches above the meadows. For Fall River it means timbered reaches between each meadow. For Duck Creek it means the south side above the upper meadows; for the Gibbon River the timber above Gibbon Meadows. For Slough Creek it means the under-fished timbered reach between the first and second meadows above the campground. Hoppers are becoming important on all streams, but “fish early, fish late” applies. When doing so, do not overlook trying a hair mouse pattern!
