THE FISHING REPORT

Owyhee River

5/22/18

179cfs–  We have yet to see a consistent PMD hatch just yet, however we have seen strong Caddis and Baetis hatches in the afternoon. If the hatch is sporadic, fishing Caddis pupa and Baetis and PMD nymphs can be effective in the riffles.

Flies to use: Zebra Midge, Split Case Baetis, Split Case PMD, BH Dirty Bird, Last Chance Cripple, Sparkle Dun BWO, X-Caddis , Elk Hair Caddis.

South Fork of the Boise River

5/22/18

3090cfs –  The river will open this Memorial Day weekend yet flows remain high due to spring runoff.

Flies to use: 

Silver Creek

5/22/18

158cfs – The opener is this weekend and with other rivers running high expect some company. If you do decide to fish the creek be sure to bring your Baetis, PMD’s, and Callibaetis. As always keep your eyes out for the Brown Drakes to come off anytime now, so it would be wise to keep a few in your box.

Flies to use: Last Chance Cripple, CDC Thorax, Captive Dun, Hackle Stacker, Split Case, FB Pheasant Tail, Para. Ant, No Name Damsel.
