Fishing Report Update - October 25th, 2023
Fishing Update: water on the small tributaries is dropping. Clarity is perfect for streamers. Try the best you can to keep your boots dry to avoid walking on or above spawning redds.
The nymphing game can also be great with higher flows. Think heavy junk flies, I will usually fish two opposite colored flies on the same rig. Something bright and obnoxious paired with something more natural. Stop in the shop to stock up before the flows jump with the rain forecasted for this weekend.
General Fishing Report for October 17, 2023
Trout fishing is still good out there, although some fish are starting to make the trek towards the slow side of the current seams. Nymphs are still producing, with some small tan caddis and Blue Winged Olives hatching (mostly on cloudy days, when the air temp warms a bit).
General Fishing Report for July 1 2023.
Conditions on our local trout rivers have been helped immensely by recent rains. Not only does this allow the fish to spread out a bit and have access to lots of food, but regular rain events help keep the water cool. However, do the fish a favor and keep taking those water temperatures. Mornings have been the coolest, no surprise there. Future forecast looks to be similar, warm days, but with showers and thunderstorms, perhaps a bit cooler towards next weekend.
Just a few days away from the IF4 and OCC15 and all things considered, I don’t think that we could be asking for a better set up into the weekend. Based on all my indicators this is looking to be one of the better fishing condition OCCs. If you’re still considering participating in the events, now is the time to get signed up because the fishing should be quite good this weekend.
