Daily River Report

August 14, 2014

Not as many Trico's up here as the mid to lower river, but in certain sections we are seeing them.  All you need is a sz 18 P-Haze with a sz 20 Tucker's Twiggy, RS2 or Organza Spinner off the back.  A few PMD Spinners are still kicking around as well so that sz 18 P-Haze will work for those sippers.  Hopper/Attractor fishing is heating up and are our afternoon go to bugs.  Hoppers in a variety of colors from Pink to Red to Gray are all working.  Make sure you get them to splat close to the banks and give it a twitch every now and then like the real thing.  A Stonefly or San Jaun dropper will up your chances at fish in the afternoons.
It's fishing season!  We are fully stocked in the shop for all your fishing needs!
