Owyhee River


 In the  early morning we’ve seen sporadic Baetis and Midges with some Cranes skating on the surface as well. In mornings nymphing remains the most productive way to consistently get into fish. In the afternoon look for fish to be keyed in on Baetis and smaller PMD’s that lasts into the evening.

Flies to use: Zebra Midge, Split Case Baetis, Split Case PMD,  Juan’s Flux Capacitor, CDC Thorax, Last Chance Cripple, Sparkle Dun, Morrish Hopper, Big Secret Hopper.

South Fork of the Boise River


 The river has still been producing some nice fish on Caddis and Pinks in the afternoon. There are still some Hoppers around so don’t be afraid of throwing a Hopper Dropper rig if you aren’t seeing any surface activity. In the evenings the Caddis have still been going strong yet the Flav’s have been inconsistent as of late.

Flies to use: OCD Caddis Tan, Restless Stone, Jig Frenchie, King Prince, Elk Hair Caddis, Corn-fed Caddis, Para. Pink Albert, Last Chance Pink, CDC Biot Flav, Morrish Hopper, Big Secret Hopper.

Silver Creek


Look for Baetis in the morning to be coming off alongside Callibaetis coming off later into the morning to bring fish to the surface. As always this time of year terrestrials are a staple to have in your box from Hoppers, Ants to Beetles for the afternoon. Keep an eye out for Mahogany’s to start becoming more prominent as the weather begins to cool off.

Flies to use: Last Chance Cripple, CDC Thorax, Captive Dun, Hackle Stacker, Parachute Ant, Crow Beetle, Morrish Hopper, Parachute Hopper, Zebra Midge, Split Case, FB Pheasant Tail.

Boise River


Now that the recreational floating season is done for the year the river is more accessible and fishing has been good. The mornings have been productive fishing nymphs as well as streamers. In the afternoon look for Caddis to be coming off along with a few PMD’s. During the evening look for fish to be up on both Caddis as well as Baetis until sunset.

Flies to use:  Prince Nymph, Hare’s Ear, Birds of Prey Caddis, Micro Beeley, Tiny Tailwater, Sculpzilla, Sparkle Minnow, Elk Hair Caddis, X-Caddis, Corn-Fed Caddis, CDC Thorax, Last Chance Cripple.

Duck Valley


As we head into fall look for the weed beds to start to dissipate making more bays and coves more accessible to fish. This is also the time of year fish will start looking to put on weight for the upcoming winter so fishing brown Leeches and Damsel nymphs can produce some decent fish. Fish will also be keyed in on Scuds and Chironomid’s as well in the shallower bays.

Flies to use: Balanced Ruby Eye Leech, Rowley’s CBO, Bead Belly Leech,Frostbite Chironomid, Ice Cream Cone, Magic Perch, Chromie, Jolly Rancher, Pregnant Scud, No Name Damsel.
