Homestake is low and clear but the stealthy angler will produce. Fish the larger stretches of the river (the first bridge up to a mile in) and avoid the smaller dammed stretches.
Nymphing caddis larva and pupa will produce the most fish and streamer fishing with olive slump busters will provide the most action. Dry/dropper rigs in the riffles in the middle of the day will prove fruitful as they stack in the more oxygenated water.
The further you walk at Homestake, the better your chances of fishing unpressured water so bring your wet wading socks and a bottle of water and plan on covering some ground.
Avoid the private water at all times!
