Small Streams 5-14-18

Baby Brook Trout (3)

Either high run-off or bad road conditions, and in some cases both, prevent us from enjoying fishing outings to many of our small streams.  There is one exception, and that is Warm River in the Three Rivers area. Warm River above the Robinson Creek confluence is not a major run-off stream through draining relatively flat lands in the eastern portion of Island Park where roads may still be in poor condition.  Much of the lower river can be accessed near Warm River Campground and above by following the abandoned rail road line.   Afternoon caddis activity, the same with BWOs, and  from remaining March browns will interest trout.  Thus life cycle patterns of these insects should be in fly boxes of anyone visiting to fish. The same goes for a variety of nymph patterns in small sizes, with and without beads. A four-weight system is ideal for use here, and certainly the fish (brook, brown, rainbow and whitefish) here run smaller than in the nearby Henry’s Fork.   Nevertheless, solitude and tranquility will make for a pleasant outing.
