Fishing Reports

Updated September 20, 2017

The start of fall is here. We had a drastic change in weather from consistent 80-95 degrees every day for months to a sudden drop in temperature and snow in town in a 24 hour period. The water temperatures corresponded and fall fishing has officially begun. We have had trouble with air quality since July, with lots of smoke from one of the largest fire seasons the west has ever seen, but this change in the weather has cleared the sky. The scenery is absolutely perfect with snow capped peaks and cool, crisp, refreshing air in the valleys. A lot of people have been transitioning into hunting season and the rivers are seeing slightly less pressure. The fishing is really turning on too. Large browns are being caught daily. The fish are on the feed and our style of fishing is transitioning from dries and terrestrials to nymphing and stripping or swinging larger streamers. This is the time of year to catch the fish of a life time.
