Midges, Midges and more Midges……fish midges top to bottom, use a favorite terrestrial as an indicator and a red zebra midge underneath. Baetis, and Mahogany’s should start hatching soon. A few craneflies buzzing.
Opened back up, fishing ok. The Mahogany Dun hatch is right around the corner!
Flows are low, but temps have dropped……fishable again.
Sure looks like it’s going to be a tough year, even for the most optimistic and passionate steelhead anglers. Bonneville did have a nice bounce of fish over the dam last week.
Middle Fork of the Boise
Low, but water temps have dropper substantially, well worth the trip. Hoppers and Stimmy’s
Duck Valley Reservation: Should be an excellent Fall.
High Mountain Lakes
Excellent idea right now……beat the heat and enjoy Idaho’s high country!
Off the Beaten Path
That time of year again…..great place to go to find warmer water, and more active fish. Malad is top on the list.
South Fork Boise
Flows have dropped to 700 cfs early August, should remain there a bit longer before dropping to 300cfs. Fishing is fair….nymphing much better than dry’s. Few Pink Albert’s, PMD's, Caddis, and Flav’s. Fair number of folks still floating, but very safe for walk/waders.
Fishing well…..continues. We have seen a lot of photo’s of big fish caught in town this summer.
It's that time of year! Bass are active all over the valley, grab your favorite patterns and get after it.
