Trout fishing is our main focus right now, but there are still a few steelhead around …a mixed bag trip mostly trout fishing and making a couple key stops to try for steelies would work. But our main focus has switched to trout for the remainder of the spring/summer. Now that my steelhead season has concluded, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone that fished with me this season. It was a great year of steelhead fishing (6 months of “chasin’ Steel”)! From November until now we had some very, very memorable days on the river. I would also like to thank everyone who stayed at the Motel and shopped in the store this spring. Without your support, I would not be able to do what I love....a very sincere THANK YOU!
Trout fishing has been pretty good, but not on fire yet. The river level have dropped and cleared to almost normal. The high water (from last week) washed LOTS of food into the river and flushed plenty of loose items into the main flow. We had some excellent streamer fishing a couple days last week, which was a blast!!! I have had a great time wetting a line myself the last week. Plus, I was able to locate a couple new targets for this summer!!!
A few trout have started looking up, but nothing consistent yet. That will change probably this week. There have been several bugs hatching…some hennies, stones, BWO’s, caddis and yellow sallies (sulphurs cannot be too far off). As far as streamer fishing olive, black, yellow and white have been most productive. We have been turning many more fish then catching, but that is half the fun of streamer fishing. Also do not over look fishing ants and other terrestrials at this time of year…the grass is greening up and the creatures are alive.
There are some great trout fishing opportunities in the coming weeks & months. Streamers fishing, sulphur, drake and hex hatches, plus terrestrials and after dark waking for the big boys! Don’t let this summer go by without joining us for a day or night on the river...give the shop a call to book a trip 1-877-422-5394.
Please be very careful floating through Rainbow Rapids…there is a large tree across the rapids…stay right!!!! It should be removed in the near future.
