Richie with a buck, batting clean up today! Waters are going to go by the wayside over the next 36 hours due to this big precipitation occurrence….Should be in good shape by Thursday or Friday on the main stems.

The South OP has been good recently with goooood numbers of hatchery fish and a few wild ones mixed in. A combination of nymphs and swung flies have been productive.
We should see a good number of fish come in with this next water occurrence. I appears we will see rain from Saturday through Monday and then ‘ light and variable’ for the remainder of the week.
Tip of the week;
1) Recently the hatchery fish have been all about the retrieved fly at the end of the swing.
The river is coming down off a large bump in flows. There is quite a bit of ice flow in the Lower Canyon right now. The water temps and air temps are predicted to warm up quite a bit next week. The fishing should be great. Recently the fishing has been OK…The last couple days, ‘kinda tough’. Water temps have been ranging from 32.5 – 33.9. When air temps & water temps change from really cold like recently for the better as they will at the start of next week, the fish will definitely be ‘happy’.
