Big Lost River

Big Lost River 8-11-12

With flow out of Mackay Dam now below 400 cfs, safer wading is here.  Tricos are beginning to emerge, so mornings would be a good time for a visit.  Caddis take over in the late afternoon andvening, and daytime is when terrestrial and traditional patterns work well.


Big Lost River 7-3-12

With 550 cfs coming out of Mackay Dam wading remains tough in the river below.  Best fishing is in or on just below Copper Basin right now. Look for caddis, PMDs, sallys, golden stonefly and traditional dry patterns to bring action.


Big Lost River 6-9-12

Water flow gage just below Mackay Dam has a recent profile that looks like Monument Valley.   Right now  flow is around 660 cfs, but in the last few days it has varied from 400 cfs to 1300 cfs. Not good for fishing!
