Jan 13 RIGS Fly Shop

Happening Now: Fish are spooky so move slow and try to make long casts. Nymphing the deep runs and pools will find you the most active fish feeding in this deeper water. Watch the weather this coming weeks, snow or rain can make the roads in very muddy. This recent cold snap has the river unfishable in the morning due to ice so plan on afternoon fishing for the next week.

Most Productive: Worms, midges, and soft hackle Midge emergers have been the most productive. The fish have moved back into the deeper holes, so get those flies deep with long drifts and you should find some fish. Nymphing is the way to go but there can be small hatches through the day that bring fish up depending on the weather.

Water Clarity: Gunni Green

Jan 06 RIGS Fly Shop

Happening Now: Fishing well both upstream and down from the confluence of the north fork. With the river at winter flows your able to wade around more and even cross in some places. The cold weather has pushed them back to the deep holes so make sure you bring some weight to get your small flies down. Small fly season is now so dust off those 18-22 flies and you should find fish.

Most Productive: Nymphing midge pupa and mayfly emergers will produce some nice fish. The fish have moved back into the deeper holes, so get those flies deep with long drifts and you should find some fish.

Water Clarity: Gunny Green.
