THE FISHING REPORT

Owyhee River

7/21/18

142cfs–  The are still PMD’s coming off strong along with sporadic Baetis. Yet on certain days fish seem to be keying in on Baetis over PMD’s. We have also started to see Hoppers and even a handful of Craneflies. If fish are being picky during the hatch sometimes throwing an ant pattern can fool the pickiest of fish. Also with the abundance of anglers please use common sense and courtesy when fishing around other anglers.

Flies to use: Zebra Midge, Split Case Baetis, Split Case PMD, OCD Caddis,Short Wing Emerger, Last Chance Cripple, Sparkle Dun, Morrish Hopper, Parachute Hopper, Para. Ant, CDC Ant.
