If you are still sitting at your home office or cubical wondering where to go fish this weekend, don't worry we have you covered. Today we are taking out the guesswork when it comes to where to go fishing. But, we won't just be going over where to fish but more importantly, how to fish and what to throw. If you are wanting to take even more guesswork off your plate for this weekend shop our staff fly selections tailored fit for any river you will find yourself in! This week our top three river reports are brought to you by the most knowledgable sales associate I know, Jack Wickman. A Colorado native, and a borderline expert when it comes to finding those 20-inch fish. If you have been in the shop you know he knows a thing or two. So, without further ado let's dive into the top three places to fish this weekend.
The nymphs and dries mentioned below are working well. Time to think small! Please refrain from wading across the stream bed this time of year in order to protect the spawning habit.
Two-fly nymph rigs have been working well for us lately. A #18-22 midge/rs2 trailed behind a larger pattern like an egg or worm is perfect for heavier flows. Check out the suggested patterns below!
When fishing nymphs, be sure to throw a larger attractor pattern as your lead fly. Eggs, worms, pats, and leeches are good options here. Midge and rs2 patterns in sizes #18-22 are still working well as our trailing fly. Baetis adults are still present lately, so don't leave dries out. Check out the suggested flies below for a good starting point.
