We’re off and running as this past weekend marked the official opening of fishing on Idaho’s rivers and streams. The report from Silver Creek was quite positive with decent pmd hatches and fish rising to pmd patterns and beetles. Warm Springs fished well with stonefly nymphs and even fish taking dry patterns such as parachute adams. While the Big Wood is still fairly high it is clear and fishable, which is not often the case in late May. Brown Drakes on Silver Creek and Green Drakes on the Big Wood are right around the corner and Sturtevant’s Fly Shop is well stocked with a great variety of fly patterns. Come in and check out the new remodel and get the latest fishing news!
