Fishing Report + Rating

2/5

November 21, 2022

Later this week it looks like the weather will warm up.  Temps in the upper 30’s and 40’s should make for better fishing conditions.  Hope for clouds as sunny days and cold make for some tough fishing.  If you go shoot for the afternoons and sub-surface will be your best bet.  Double nymph rigs with Rubberlegs, Double Bead Stones, Lightning Bugs, Spanish Bullets, San Juans and Eggs fished in the slower drop offs and inside bends.  Streamer fishing slow and deep with Kreelex, Sparkle Minnows, Mini-Dungeons, Chicago Overcoats and Baby Gongas.

Lot’s of downed trees in stretches this summer.  Give us a call for up to date information.

1/2 off Friday’s are still happening, every Friday all year long. (1/2 off your first dozen dries or nymphs)
