Golden stoneflies are coming out on the Warm River to Ashton section of the river, and some giant stoneflies remain. Goldens will now work their way up the river and such as Box Canyon will be the next host. The next big activity, soon to happen on the lower river, is that from green drakes. That activity, too, will come to certain sections of the upper river. We are all hoping for a return of gray drakes in past intensities around the middle of this month on the lower river. All these happenings and more to come are the reasons why this great and unique river attracts crowds of enthusiasts whether boating or wading. Certainly the crowds can test one’s patience, but tolerance can come based on the fact that few of those present are lucky enough to have such a treasure on their doorstep as do we in east Idaho.
