We have been receiving really good reports on the Lower River. Lots of fish eating dry flies in the late afternoon and evening hours. Golden Stones are producing fish during the day and there is a good Pale Morning Dun Hatch during the afternoon. Be sure to have those Gray Drakes in your fly box because those flies should be hatching any day now.
I talked to a friend up in Island Park today who told me that fish are starting to look at PMD’s on the Ranch and the fishing is picking up somewhat. The Box has some salmon flies hanging around and fish have been caught on the banks and in the seam lines in the middle of the river around structure.
The water is high through the whole system compared to previous years but the water clarity is really good and the high flows have pushed some of the bigger fish to the bank. Stop by the shop for an up to the minute report.
