Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Three Rivers Ranch's Tip of the Week
Flows are sitting at 150 cfs. Fishing has remained consistent, although we are seeing very subtle takes on nymphs so size down the indicator and set on everything! Midges, BWOS, PMDs, and terrestrials are the go-tos at the moment. Flows dropping soon. Plan to fish elsewhere mid October-March.

5-Day Outlook as of 9/29/23
Midges and BWOs are still the bulk of the hatches. PMDs and caddis are providing some good afternoon fishing but are still spotty on where/when they will show. Flows are expected to drop Oct. 15th. Browns are slowly starting to stage for the spawn. Wade cautiously. Once flows drop, plan on fishing elsewhere until the spring when the fish are fuly recovered and the eggs on redds have hatched well into Feburary.
Techniques & Tips as of 9/29/23
9' 4x, 5x, 6x leaders and tippets. Smaller indicators will make for better presentations to spooky fish on sunny days. Nymphs will find fish all day but you will have dry fly opportunities if you are looking for them.
