WEEKEND OUTLOOK AND FORWARD The past week we had excellent fishing most days. The colder weather, light rain and snow squalls finally have it feeling like late fall. Over my last week of trips the dry fly fishing has been very good. Most days have been offering up about 3 to 4 hours of casting to fish on the surface. We can expect to see this action continue and on days where it is comfortable to fish great action for BIG Rainbows can be had. Now for the immediate future, this weekend. A polar vortex came to town last night and brought us severe cold. Today we are forecast for our first day where it does not get above the freezing point. Tonight single digit temps. are forecast. (9 degrees).

BLUE WING OLIVES ARE ON! It took until November but the Blue WIng Olives and some colder weather are finally here. I have still been on the river every day with guest and can finally report reliable olive hatches every day. Over the last week it has been reliable but the start time has been fluctuating a bit. Recently I have had guests fish the olive hatch for duration's that ranged from the entire day to a 2 hour period. Most days however it has lasted from around 1:00 pm until dark. Remember that most all of the trout have moved to the slowest places in the river. If you want to fish risers spend you time searching the tailouts of the bigger pools. If you have never fished the late season

Still Going Strong

This season which we're dubbing "the season that never ends" is still going strong. The fish are now mostly in or near where they will spend the winter. With the cold nasty weather olives are going strong, look in areas with little to no current that will concentrate bugs. Remember olives are small, it takes a lot to fill up a big trout, look in areas that are conducive to efficient feeding. There is an art to finding these spots, the simplest way for me to explain it is this. If you dropped 1000 ping pong balls a mile upstream where would they go? Also pay attention to the bubbles/foam it can make seeing the areas im talking about easier, but not always. long tippets and stealthy approache
