Fishing has been all over the board recently with some worthy highlights .

The best of the day currently is during the 1-3pm March Brown hatch extravaganza.  If you are not in a spot with bugs or fish rising, move:)   The window of opportunity for this hatch can be short.  Try to be in a spot early – like 12:30.

Also a common mistake is walking in ‘on’ the fish.  You can find feeding trout in very shallow water, especially on March Browns.

Hot patterns include
#8-12 Unit Skwala
#14-18 Purple Haze, Quigley BWO
#12-14 March Brown Trigger Nymph
#12-14 March Brown Parachutes etc.
#16-18 CDC Pheasant tails, Flashback PT’s, Lightning bugs
#12-16 CDC Princes, Halo Prince
#16-18 Brassies
#6-10 Sparkle minnows, Sculpzillas, Bow River Buggers,

Snow pack is worthy for our 2021 fishing season here in Washington. We ar fortunate as a lot of othere states have not fared as well.


This spring continues to be a bit sporadic.  Water levels in the lake are way higher then normal for this time of year?

Bugs include Blue Wings Olives, Amelytus and a few Skwala.
