A section- fishing has been decent to good depending on the day and the skill of the angler. Nymphing has been good in deep water and using small flies and san juan worms. Dry fly fishing has been best in the afternoons using terrestrials and a small trico. Long cast and drifts are essential for effective dry fly fishing. Streamer fishing is picking up as temperatures drop.
B section- fishing has been decent to good. Nymphing deep and fast water using san juan worms has been working. Dry fly fishing has been best on sunny warm days. There are some nice browns holding tight to the banks, so get that fly close. Streamer fishing has been good when conditions are right.
C section- fishing has been decent. Nymphing san juan worms in fast water has been ok. Dry fly fishing will be best on sunny days. Long cast are essential to catching fish. The dry flies will work tight to the bank as well as down the middle of the river. Try to get as long as drifts as possible. Streamer fishing has been picking up and will work best on cloudy days.
