Daily River Report

September 16, 2014

Trico's are still out in force  and spinner falls are happening even after lunch.  Hecuba's and Mahogony's are on the menu as well in the right spots and especially on the cloudy days.  Spend some time on the risers and presentation is everything this time of year.  You need to get the fly right over the head of the risers.  They won't move far for the fly.  Hoppers are still getting munched and bigger hoppers are getting some nice fish.  

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!
