This is the one river that does not “Blow Out” believe it or not….Current visibility is 6 feet. Current bugs include Baetis, Caddis, March Browns. Predominant tactic lately is nymphing with some swinging and dry flies. Here is a world class trout caught recently….Not all of them are this big:)
Smallmouth bass action is heating up. Top water action just started on one of our favorite desert streams…..
