Memorial Day


First things first, we hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable Memorial weekend. If you didn’t know, Grey Reef saw another increase in flows this morning at 1am, taking her up to 2,000cfs. Per our source we should see another increase tonight taking us to 2,600cfs. Not going to lie, our crew is excited! With the bump in flows and Bates Creek settling down we should start to see lower river conditions improve. Fishing overall continues to be good with midges and baetis(BWOs) still hatching daily. We are starting to see the fish keying in on PMDs to some degree. This obviously makes sense as we should start transitioning out of baetis(BWOs) and start making our way towards PMDs, caddis and sallies. Let’s go summer!!

If you are planning on heading this way make sure to buy your license before you arrive.
