Fly Fishing Report

 

Current Report as of:

Monday, January 19, 2015

Isolated pockets on the South Fork can hold rising trout, even on the coldest days.  Midges, size 20-24 and BWO size 18-20 will be the fly to mimic.  The bulk of the hatch will take place around noon, and can last until 4pm.  Nymphing is the most productive method: Stonefly Nymphs, Pheasant Tails, Prince Nymphs, Zebra Midges are all great flies to have in your box.   Throwing big black, olive, white, or orange streamers can also be productive!    The roads are a little slick, just take your time heading down the canyon and to your spot.

The Owyhee river will be frozen in some sections. The extremely low flows have made for more difficult fishing as well. Although the fish are not rising steadily, it doesn't mean they wont take a dry fly.  Nymphing and streamer fishing will be the most productive way to fish.  There are a few fish still on the spawning beds, be sure to avoid them.

Midges make up the bulk of the hatch, size 28-20.  Be sure to avoid the Conservancy, it is closed.

Big Wood River

Little to no dry fly activity, so when you catch a day when you see heads up, feel lucky. BWOs and midges will be the main diet for the fish.   Stonefly nymphs with your favorite dropper nymph can be very productive.  Streamer fishing will also work this time of year.

Boise River In Town

Flows are fluctuating on the river.  Steelhead are still there, and can be caught near the very spot they were released.   Nymphing will be the most productive way of fishing: Pheasant Tails, Copper Johns, Zebra Midges are all great patters to use.
