General Overview

As we move into the Fall Season there are several key things to pay attention to on the Dream Stream. Fishing will be alot more technical due to lower flows and pressure. In addition, we'll begin to see lake run browns int he system, so please be aware of actively spawning fish and do your best to not target fish on redds. This is a great time to go enjoy cooler weather and the changing seasons, just be aware of crowds and be sure to protect the resource!

One quick note: As we move into a lower flow time period with air temps still warm please be sure to watch water temp and revive fish if needed...Protect the resource!

Stream Conditions

Flowrate above Elevenmile Reservoir: 67.6 cfs

Clarity: Clear

Suggested Methods

We're getting into the Fall Season, which means a real focus on small bugs. You'll see a continuation of Trico activity with increased presence of Pseudo Baetis (Small Fall BWO's), and the full Midge Lifecycle. Its typically best to focus your efforts on nymphing until you see a substantial amount of fish keyed on top or in the film on emergers.
