Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Fightmaster Fly Fishing's Tip of the Week
Stream levels and temperatures are in pretty good shape now. Nymphing is still probably your best bet, particularly in the morning. With water levels stabilizing, the dry fly fishing should get more consistent, especially in the afternoon.

Techniques & Tips as of 4/9/21
Approach & presentation is the name of the game here. These fish don't often get overly selective on fly patterns, but they spook easily and won't tolerate a bad drift! Fish upstream, dress in earth-tone clothing, and keep a low profile. Stay back and make longer casts in slow pools. Get closer and keep as much line off the water when fishing pocket water.
