Fishing has been lights out on the days leading up to the flush! Streamers, nymphs and even some dries have all been working well. Looks like we have some incredible weather for the first week of the flush, couldn’t pick a better time to be here!
The annual flush of Grey Reef is slated to begin tomorrow, 3/12, and go until 3/21. During this time the Bureau of Reclamation increases the flow out of Grey Reef Dam from 500 CFS to 4000 CFS back down to 500 CFS everyday for ten days. The flush scours the river bottom to make great spawning habitat for our Grey Reef rainbows.
1:00 to 3:00AM 2,000 CFS
3:00 to 7:00AM 4,000 CFS
7:00 to 8:00 AM 3,000 CFS
8:00 to 9:00Am 2,000 CFS
9:00 to 10:00 AM 1,000 CFS
10:00 to Midnight 500 CFS
During this time tons of food gets kicked up and the trout can go on a feeding frenzy! San Juan worms, squirmy worms, PSL’s, UV leeches, Hot head leeches, and crane fly larva are all great patterns to use during this time.
If you have any questions or would like to book a trip, don’t hesitate to stop by the shop or give us a call. Happy Flush Fishing!
