What a great time of year! Flows are at winter levels and the weather is beautiful. Highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s with light winds(with the exception of yesterday), day after day.
GREY REEF: Grey Reef is in excellent condition! The water is clear from Grey Reef Dam to Glenrock. Lots and lots of water to fish! Tricos are the name of the game in the morning, especially on the upper river. 5X tippet to a parachute adams with a trico spinner dropper has been our go-to setup. Once the dry fly fishing subsides our guides have been switching over to the nymph program or a big dry/dropper setup. 3.5-5ft, 1-2 BBs attached to the following flies; prince nymph,tung teaser, pat’s rubber legs, san juan worm, PAL, and/or a foam wing RS2.
MIRACLE MILE: Pathfinder Reservoir is at 61% capacity, making the Mile fishable to the Sage Creek confluence, below Chalk Bluff. Water conditions are excellent and nymphing is the name of the game. 3-6ft, 1-3 BBs attached to the following flies; prince nymph,tung teaser, san juan worm, UV leech, pheasant tail, and/or a foam wing RS2. For the devout we are getting some fish to eat the streamer. Standard fall fare-rusty trombones, goldies, mini sex dungeons and mini peanut envy’s.
FREMONT CANYON: The water has been off-colored for the past few weeks in Fremont. Fishing remains fair and nymphing has been the most productive method for catching fish. 4-7ft, 1-2 BBs attached to the following flies; bh prince nymph, bh pheasant tail, reef worm, and/or a foam wing RS2.
