Big Lost 10/27

No change here with respect to flows, best patterns, and tactics. Fishing may get a bit crowded below the dam as those seeking some of the best late season dry fly fishing come in from all points.


Big Lost 10/16

Snowstorms kept some folks away from this part of the country last week, but now roads are clear, and we have heard of good responses to BWOs and midges. With flows out of Mackay Dam around 150 cfs the river is in ideal condition for walk-in fishing.

Midge and BWO life cycle patterns are providing great action on the river below Mackay Dam. Wading gets you to nearly all of the river. Get out and enjoy this great little river before cold weather sets in.

Now is the time of season when this great little river really shines. Wading is easy. Midge and BWO life cycle patterns and small terrestrial patterns are the fare, and all one needs is a floating line


Big Lost 9/11

Midges and BWOs are making for some interesting dry fly fishing on the river between Mackay and the dam. Terrestrial patterns will also bring some action on the river.

The river below Mackay Dam is now very fishable by walk-in & wading. It will likely stay this way until general season closes. Get out to Mackay and enjoy this great little river while we have great September weather. Contact us for fly pattern and strategy thoughts.

Been fishing very well below Mackay Dam! Midges and BWOs provide for top water action. Small beadhead nymphs and leeches bring action below the surface.


Big Lost 9/5

With flows now close to 200 cfs out of Mackay Dam, the river around Mackay is very accessible. Get out and enjoy this great little river for the next few months. for now terrestrial, BWO and midge patterns will bring action.


Big Lost 8/29

Flow out of Mackay Dam is just over 300 cfs, so a good September is shaping up. You can walk-in and carefully wade now. Use midge life cycle patterns, bead head nymphs and terrestrial patterns for best results.
