The river is in gooooood condition and the fishing has been the same.  Spotty can also be description.  The nymphing in the early part of the day is  OK at best and the dry fly fishing in the afternoon evening, while spotty, is the highlight.  You will find some banks productive for the Skwala adult , and others not so much.  Don’t be afraid to cover a bit of water with your boat in search of optimum Skwala activity.  TIP – Also remember, The fly does not need to be one inch from the bank.  One of my favorite Skwala zones is on a predominant seam that is literally 15 feet off the bank!

There are and have been Blue Wings and now a few March Browns starting to show
