Another Blast


Posted on January 29th, 2023





Well it looks like we might be breaking out of another 36hr arctic blast.  The snow has finally stopped and the cold temps are settling in, lows today and tomorrow are set to be in the negatives.  The upside, we should be back above freezing by weeks end.

Current conditions are as follows…

Current Flows:

Grey Reef: 450cfs (*No floating Grey Reef to Lusby for the next few days.)   

Fremont Canyon: 76cfs  

Miracle Mile: 535cfs +/- (*As always this time of year use caution if you are thinking about venturing to the Mile.  Make sure to check with someone local and be prepared.)

We were on Upper Grey Reef this past week and the fishing was pretty legit.  Temperatures were in the mid 20s and it was a little breezy, so nymphing definitely seemed like the thing to do.  The handful of fish we caught on nymphs all ate a hot head leech, black with a chartreuse head or brown with orange.  Decided to break out the streamer after an hour or so of relatively “slow” fishing.  I think the first six casts got a grab or a hook up.  The next few hours delivered close to a couple of dozen of grabs on a single rusty-t, on a slow swing and strip.  They were definitely all about the streamer!
