Fishing on the Lower River is good as it can get. There are great hatches of Gray Drakes in the evenings, Flav’s Golden Stones, Pale morning Duns, Green Drakes and Caddis are bringing fish to the surface. The Gray Drakes and Caddis are working well during the evening hours of the Day. Goldens, Flavs and PMD’s have been working well during the day. I suspect the weekend to be fairly busy because the Henry’s is pretty much one of the only rivers fishing right now. To avoid crowds start early in the morning with Streamers and fish the dries as the day gets warmer. I personally would put in about lunch and fish till dark.
On the Upper River, flows on the Box Canyon were dropped today 1,000 cfs down to 1120 cfs. Give this section about a day for the fish to get reorganized with that large of a decrease in the flows. The ranch has some Drakes hatching but most of the fish being caught on the Ranch have been during the late and evening hours. PMD’s and Caddis have also been good on the Ranch.
