Deep Canyon Outfitters's Tip of the Week
Bring lots of caddis and BWO imitations. We're starting to see good numbers of October Caddis flying around. With the low steelhead returns, steelhead fishing is closed from the Mouth up to Lake Billy Chinook

5-Day Outlook as of 10/20/21
Cooler water and weather temperatures. On the cloudy days blue winged olives are going to be great to have in the box.
Techniques & Tips as of 10/20/21
Nymphing for trout has been our most consistent tactic recently. Big dark colored stones Sz 4-10 with 8 being a good compromise. Mayflies (#16-18), and flashy midges have been productive lately. Also, fishing standard nymphs like Hares Ears and PT's always produce some action. You can find fish SWINGING now - makes slow fishing days interesting.
