Early Spring Fishing Report

Despite the colder weather that rolled in the fishing has remained excellent! The weather will keep improving throughout the week and into the weekend with highs reaching into the 50’s. A few TRFS guides were out fishing all weekend and caught some great fish nymphing and on streamers, the goldie was the ticket!

Grey Reef- 500 CFS- The flush is scheduled for 3/6-3/15, as many of you know the fishing can be spectacular during this time. The flush essentially scours the river and cleans out all of the gravel beds used for spawning, it also churns up a mass of food. Crane fly patterns, leeches, san juan worms, scuds, and annelids work very well. Until then our best flies have been a red Reef worm followed up by a mayhem midge or UV Emerger, fishing them 4-6 ft indicator to weight with a BB or two as the weight.

Fremont/Cardwell- 75 CFS- The fishing has been great out there, the road not so much. We suggest having a 4-wheel drive vehicle if you plan on heading out there. Our top flies have been Deep Purple, the Reef’s PAL, choclate UV emerger, and Amber scuds.

Miracle Mile- 1,200 CFS- The Mile was inaccessible this weekend, with warmer temps in the forecast the road should open by later this week.
