Big bugs are out all the way to Box Canyon. Warm weather is coming, so look for them to be more active. Fish on the upper river have been exposed to them for a lesser time than those below. So the Box and the reach from Riverside to Warm River could be just great. When the fish are really on the adults, pattern selection (other than choosing one that is visible in broken water) is not as important as placing the fly in the right place. Watch for a fish rising repeatedly and with the right timing drop your fly just ahead of him.
Fall River has about doubled in flow because of recent heavy rains. This has slowed fishing below Chester Dam, so we suggest that locations above Chester dam will offer the best fishing.
