Just spent the last eight out of ten days on the river. Salmonflies are still out all the way to Maupin. Fishing with the big bugs is best above Whitehorse. Fish are still taking them lower, but there are fewer bugs and fish are gorged. They are also starting to key in on other smaller offerings (PMD's, Drakes, Little Olive Sallies, etc..) The hot and or over cast days were best. Good hatches of PMDs and Green Drakes also occurred. River traffic on this section has been light for this time of year. Water conditions are high, but stable. The abundance of water, and the light pressure has me looking forward to the rest of the summer, the fishing should be great!
We still have availability for late June and July Caddis trips!
Let us know if you would like to get in on the second part of the trout season, where the river is usually even less crowded and the fishing is still great!
