With terrestrial insects so important in trout diets this time of year, small streams offer great fishing choices, especially for anglers seeking some solitude or for those preferring to use lighter equipment. Because of our back to back great snowfall winters, most are in great shape. The pic below shows Warm River Spring, the source of much water in that river.
True, there is good fishing in the smaller reach above. But below the spring the river hosts a better insect base and has better water for hosting a bigger trout population. Fish here range up to the mid teens in inches of length, and because brookies, browns, ‘bows, and a rare cutt are present you never know for sure which has just hit your fly. Mainly a riffle and run stream for miles, this part of Warm River is delightful. Get in touch with us to learn how to approach it.
