Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Chad Allen's Tip of the Week
South Fork is now at 300 cfs. October caddis, blue winged olives, and midges are the main forage this time of year. Flavs being spotted late in the afternoon. The evening bite has been the most productive. Nymphing being the most productive during the day. Brighter attractor style nymphs doing the trick, size 14-18. Boise River In-Town is at 530~ cfs with good floating flows still available. Attractor style nymphs on a double nymph rig and streamer fishing will be the key. Browns are slowly staging for the spawn, so be weary of riffles and leave them be if you see them.
