Daily River Report

August 22, 2014

Tricos and a few PMD's are the mayflies going right now.  It will only get better with the clouds.  Right now a sz 18 Purple Haze and a Trico, like a Tucker's Twiggy, RS2 or Gould's Drowned Trico.  Hoppers in the afternoon with a stonefly dropper will keep your rods bent.  Hoppers in Tan, Pink and Flesh colors are working best.  A big Luna Negra is also getting eaten more in the mornings.

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!
