Hopper fishing anyone!  With the cooler and longer nights and the bump in flows the fishing is getting really good!  Big Hoppers/Attractors and droppers is the name of the game in the afternoons.  Once the Trico's really get going we'll have better match-the-hatch type fishing.  We are seeing them already in numbers, but it will only get better.  Your drifts count on the Trico's so make your first one your best one.  

Remember we have 1/2 off Fridays!!!  Your first 12 nymphs and dries are half-off!

Hatch Reels are what you need for the Big Clark Fork Rainbows.  These fish are hot and you need a premium drag!
