Fishing Report / Greg's Blog

Oct. 22 

Flows are on the way down to 600 cfs today – visibility good.

I got three reports this week from anglers fishing Cable Hole, Middle Flats & Texas Hole. Fishing remains good and from what I hear crowds are down. Two of the folks reported most of the fish were really mice size - nothing under 16" with lots in the 18" - 22" range.

Evidently the governor still doesn’t want folks from out of state visiting the state parks. Whether or not that is being enforced with tickets and fines for out of state plates in the parking lot by the park rangers I am not sure.

The usual assortment of small midges - larva, pupa & emergers - and annelids in the upper river will take fish and baetis have been showing up from Texas Hole on down river (see below for some of the patterns getting bit). A ten pound brown from Texas Hole was among the many decent fish landed.

Fishing is good, but it looks like the flows are on the way down to the winter levels – get out here if you can and take advantage of the great conditions before the flows get low.
