Current River Flow Updates

Latest Update: 4/10/19 -- Flows on the Dream Stream have bumped to 122 cfs. There are a good amount of lake run fish in the system now. This means serious combat fishing, plan to fish a weekday or the worst possible weather day if you can't handle the intense crowds. If you see fish on redds please leave them alone! Fish will be holding in the deeper runs and rock gardens, however, during a decent midge or baetis hatch, there will surely be fish feeding in the riffles. Nymphing is going to be the primary method of fishing. Attractor patterns such as worms, eggs, and leeches are going to be your best option for lead flies. Trailing behind one of the attractors listed above, we recommend small midge patterns or baetis patterns ranging in size from 18-22. A well presented, drag free drift is sometimes more important than fly selection. Check out some of the patterns below on our online store!
