Great Basin rattlesnakes are active in the canyon, and anglers are reporting encounters along the riverbanks and on trails/footpaths leading to the river. Use caution, always watch the trail ahead of you and check carefully before stepping over rocks, reaching onto ledges or sitting down on rocks or logs.  Learn how to stay safe if you encounter a rattlesnake. Fly anglers are reporting good catch rates fishing the upper Diamond Fork and Sixth Water sections using dry-dropper and hopper-dropper rigs. Both attractant dries and floating terrestrial patterns paired with a nymph dropper are producing healthy Bonneville cutthroat and brown trout while fishing/wading upstream. Streamers, light spoons and small inline spinners can also be effective when fishing pools and deeper runs; cast across the stream and let the streamer/lure “swing” with the current as you retrieve.
