Happening Now: Fishing at Paco Chu Puk has been tough, Fish are moving slow and accurate drifts will get eats but the fish won't move to pick up your flies. Fish are feeding mostly on midges and will still eat leaches. 5x, 6x, or even 7x will help you get more eats just be careful fighting them.
Happening Now: Flows are at there winter level pushing fish into the deeper pools and runs so don't focus to much time on shallow water. As the days get longer water temps are going up causing BWO hatches during the warmest parts of the day. Fish have been holding tight to structure including any overhanging banks or trees so dont pass any up with out a cast or too.

Most Productive: Tandem nymph rig with leeches (black, brown, or olive) and a variety midges or BWO emergers as long as they're small.Most Productive:Fish are looking to feed so throwing size 14 flies in general patterns have been working great with small BWO or midge emerges behind. Changing wight or depth on your rig is common as the pool can vary in depth.

Water Clarity: Good Water Clarity: Clear
