Report Date: May 28th 2019


The recent snow has caused some of the higher streams to go back to winter mode, so nymphing the deeper pools with standard attractor nymphs will probably be the best way to pick up fish.  However, some of the small streams at lower elevations are starting to transition to runoff mode, and a dry dropper or small streamer fished close to the banks should produce in those areas.  For more detailed info stop by the shop or give us a call, as conditions are changing daily right now.
