Daily River Report

October 22, 2014

Dry fly heaven down here on the right day with Mahoganies and BWO's coming off strong!  The fish are typical fall fish meaning presentation is everything and your first drift is the one that can either catch that fish or put them all down in that pod of sippers.  CDC Duns, Extended Bodies and Cripples are the way to go for these technical fish.  Streamer fishing is really good on the cloudy days and White, Olive and Natrual colored streamers are the ticket.  Some big fish are being caught this fall!

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!
