Daily River Report

September 30, 2014

Mayfly season is upon us! Trico's, Mahogonies, Hecuba's and BWO's are all hatching.  A P-Haze, Purple Craze, Adams and Brindle Chute are great searching patterns.  When you do happen upon a pod of rising fish put an extendend body Mahogony, BWO, Trico Spinner or BWO Comparadun off the back and make your first drift count.  Streamer fishing is picking up and Black, Olive and White are all colors to use this fall.  Brown/Yellow combinations are always a good idea as well.  
It's fishing season!  We are fully stocked in the shop for all your fishing needs!
