The river is completely different at the Blue Ribbon origin below Lake Easton than it’s final stretch in the Lower Canyon near Roza Dam.  It is for this reason a single report is difficult to summarize the entire river’s activity. That being said,   throughout the system, the overall nymph game has been stable to good and the dry fly fishing about the same or a tad bit less predictable.
We are starting to see a few hoppers as well….Remember, Ants are trout candy.
