The weather may be cooling down a bit, but the fishing is staying hot!
Dawn is bringing out huge clouds of tricos on silver creek from point of rocks, all the way to the top of the preserve, with a good mix of pmd’s and baetis thrown in. Stay out into the afternoon for damsel-flies and hoppers. There’s still great evening pmd’s and caddis on the creek as well.
The lower lost is beginning to drop to a fishable level, if it continues to go down, grab a bunch of craneflies, and head to Mackay for the most aggressive dry fly strikes of the year. Also take some San Juan worms and assorted midge pupa to nymph the deeper water.
At 190-ish cfs, big wood is starting to get to the low side of perfect, bringing on great fishing, especially in the morning. We’ve been seeing some tricos near Hailey and Bellevue and stonefly shucks up high. Try a purple chubby-wubby with a zebra midge dropper.
There’s a lot of great fly water in the wood river valley. Come in to Sturtevants of Sun Valley and we’ll give you all the details on the rest of it.
