Bechler Meadows opens to horse traffic on July 15th. With the river dropping and ultra-clear, successful fishing will be tougher than any place around. So if you want to test your dry fly skills, this is the place. If you are in the meadows and want action for sure, try Boundary Creek. The fish are smaller to be sure, but there are some large enough to be a credit anywhere and surprise you. Start relying on your favorite small (#18) PMD patterns. Hoppers are several days away in the meadows, but ant, beetle, and deer or horsefly (try the “out of style” humpy in size12) patterns, gently and precisely placed, will work.
