Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Chad Allen's Tip of the Week
Flows are at typical winter levels, which means fish will be more concentrated into the deeper, slower slots. Split shot and the right depth are critical for success as we head into winter. Keep an eye out for BWO's and Midges Boise In Town: Flow levels have dropped to ~322 cfs. Nymphing and streamers will still be the best bet for finding fish in town. Heavier tungsten nymphs could be the ticket. Sink tips for streamers to get the flies into the strike zone.
