Daily River Report

May 22, 2015

The river is fishable down to Cascade now.  If the wind isn't blowing the bugs off we are still seeing epic amounts of BWO's, along with March Browns and now more and more Caddis are showing up.  Extended Body BWO's, Cripples and Comparaduns have gotten the job done.  Nymphing is there too with Micro Mays, Soft Hackle PT's, Purple Weight Nymphs, Green Machines, Scuds, Sow Bugs.  Streamer fishing has been really good with clouds around and dirtier water.  Skiddish Smolts, Beldar Rubberlegs, Silvey's Sculpins and of course Sparkle Minnows have all had their moments.
