Techniques & Tips

Double nymph rigs. Big attracting fly with small pheasant tail / hares ear / nymph following. Use a heavy fly as your bottom fly and try lighter weighted or unweighted flies above. Connection can be made by leaving a tag end longer at your leader to tippet connection. Make your tag ends no longer than 2-3 inches to avoid tangles.

7-Day Forecast

River has been stocked! Nymph rigs will work best. Junk flies followed up by naturals on a dropper. Watch for dry fly action as it warms up throughout the day. BWO's will come off
