Current River Flow Updates

Latest Update: 12/12/18 -- Flows on the Dream Stream have been hovering around 45cfs as of late. We expect to see these flows holding steady throughout the rest of the winter months. For the most part, 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 Baetis and Midge patterns ranging in size from 20-24. Downsizing the size of your indicator can be a useful technique to detect the soft strikes of less aggressive fish during the cold months. A well presented, drag free drift is sometimes more important than fly selection. Check out some of the patterns below on our online store!
