With a huge bump in the flows, the clarity of the river has immensely suffered. The sight fishing is not possible at the moment but look forward to it in the coming weeks. The fishing hasn’t been put off by the flows, and the low visibility helps to provide cover for you. Your meat and potato flies will produce the majority of your fish currently. Thicker tippet and large amounts of weight will help with fighting the higher flows and landing fish.
Craneflies, stoneflies, caddis, mayflies… you can’t go wrong right now. Lead off with a larger stone or cranefly and follow that with something smaller and flashy. Rainbow warriors, flashback pheasant tails, and juju baetis are not bad confidence patterns. The water looks discouraging but the fishing hasn’t been put on hold.
