At 1700 CFS you are limited as a wading angler, but there are sti Its been a long cold winter, but things are starting to look better! The warmer weather has sparked much more action. Expect to find a midge hatch anytime between 10 am and 4pm. You may also encounter some BWO’s popping from 12-4 as well. Streamer fishing has also been productive. Both shallow and fast, as well as deeper holes and runs are worth hitting. Get your streamer near the bottom, move it and hold on. Nymphing larger flies, like stonefly nymphs trailed by a midge or flashy dropper fly will also take plenty of fish.  Fish the warmest parts of the day; Fish activity will be the strongest then. Be aware of your surroundings! The warm weather may trigger flash floods. Be safe and have fun.

Large terrestrials, like hoppers and beetles, offer up a great meal for hungry trout. Your favorite stimulator pattern will also do the job, and trail off a caddis pattern or a pink albert. The pinks start to hatch in the afternoon, and fish will be keyed into the emergers as well as the adults. Smaller terrestrials, like the pico spider or the green beetle, can bring up a fish, even if it has stuffed itself with hoppers. The fish on the South Fork tend not to pass up a smaller meal, even after gorging on larger insects.  Nymphing larger flies, like stonefly nymphs, or throwing larger streamers, can also be productive.

Midges size 20-28 Recommended patterns: Griffiths gnat, Suspended midge, Para midge, Adult, Magic Fly, hatching midge

BWO size 18-26 Recommended patterns: RS2 emerger, Cripple, Extended body

Nymphs size 4-22 Recommended patterns: San Juan worm, Zebra midge, Split Wing PMD, flash back Pheasant tail, Crystal baetis nymph

The ice is breaking up nicely with the warmer weather and there is a decent amount of open water. The midges have been coming off around noon and the hatch has been fair. Most of the midges are between a size 24 and 22.  Small parachute midges and midge emergers have been working well. Future warmer weather will bring BWO’s. Nymphing midge and mayfly patterns we be effective. Streamer fishing has also been good. Try a small leech or minnow pattern in the deeper pools and drop offs. Also don’t hesitate to slowly twitch or strip a zebra midge or pheasant tail in the deeper slower parts. There is still a decent amount of snow over there so don’ t drive down any dirt roads and get stuck!

Boise River In Town

Streamers size 2-12 Recommended patterns:  Wolly bugger, Dalai Lama, Sculp-zilla, Flash Fry, Sculpin patterns

Nymphs size 4-22 Recommended patterns: San Juan worm, Zebra midge, Split Wing PMD, flash back Pheasant tail, Crystal baetis nymph

Fishing on the Boise River in town has been decent. Nymphing is the most productive way to fish the Boise River through town; however, you can still catch fish rising to midges. If you plan on streamer fishing, be ready to work a lot of water.  Searching with a streamer can bring out the biggest fish in the river, but you will work for them. There may be a Steelhead or two lurking throughout as well.
