Fall Colors are Here !!

Time to get out on the water and enjoy all that Fall Fishing has to offer. Wild Browns can still be found sipping midges and chasing a few caddis. Look for fish to be hanging in and around riffles as well as slow pools but be careful not to spook them as the water is flowing around 30 cfs making for delicate presentations. As the spawning season approaches, be mindful of where you wade and please do not fish over actively spawning trout.

As leaves fall from trees they can make it tough to get a good drift through runs and riffles without snagging. Windy days can make this more of a challenge but if you stick with it, determination will pay off. Try small emerging midge and small elk hair caddis patterns to draw some surface action. Long leaders and light tippet will increase your chances at landing some butter browns.

Most importantly, have fun and be safe !
