Current River Flow Updates

Latest Update: 12/12/18 -- Flows in Cheeseman canyon are sitting at 56 CFS and will most likely stay around there the rest of the winter. There is no doubt you'll be seeing fish in the deeper pools, but sometimes it can be frustrating when you don't know exactly what they're keyed in on. Smaller midges and baetis patterns (sz 20-24) on 5x and 6x are going to be what gets it done. While flashy patterns are certainly appealing, bland simple patterns are what these fish are looking for. An important rule of thumb here is "don't leave fish to find fish." If you come across feeding fish, keep fishing to them, try different patterns and have patience. As long as they don't get put down or get lockjaw those fish should eventually eat one of your well-presented patterns. Check out some of our shop favorites below!
