September went by in a flash and it did not disappoint! As we round out the first ten days of October, all we can say is that it has been a dandy thus far. Weather and conditions are primo!! Flows on Grey Reef remain at 500cfs and the river is clear, extremely clear, especially down low. Conditions are prime for the picking from Grey Reef Dam to Glenrock. Miracle Mile is in good shape as well, not quite the clarity but fishing has been good. But as you would expect it has been busy with both fisherman and fall hunting camps. Fremont Canyon is at it’s low flow as well (72cfs) and the water is off-colored.
So what’s happening on the fishing front? Well, to start you need to be rigged for just about anything and everything right now. We are still seeing good numbers of tricos and pseudos, making for some legit dry fly-fishing. One of our guides even got a few to eat a hopper the other day. We are also starting to see some fish really moving for streamers. Nymphing is good, per usual. Our rigs have been 2-6ft, a single #4 split to 2 ABs…it just depends on the depth and the speed of the water you are fishing. Our top nymphs have been pheasant tails, foam wing RS2s, mayhems, pat’s rubber legs and PALs.
