Deep Canyon Outfitters's Tip of the Week
The Lower D is fishing extremely well. The fish are on the bite, try indicator fishing with flashy jig style flies. Swinging flies for trout and steelhead is good idea right now.

Weather is cooling off this week. This should make for a pretty good bite.
Techniques & Tips as of 9/21/22
Nymphing for trout has been our most consistent tactic recently. We like to utilize both dry droppers and double nypmh rigs. Bring split shot to help get down fast in the deepest holes.
