Owyhee River Fishing Report – May 16, 2016

PMD & Callibaetis are starting to pick up. An afternoon trip to the river is acceptable as some of the best dry fly action is in the middle of the afternoon. Working streamers in deep pocket water through out the day could be very productive.

Nymphing has been very productive, Zebra midges, pmd emergers, caddis pupas have all been doing well.

Fill your fly box with small midge patterns, small baetis nymphs, small leech streamers, & wooly buggers. Give Three Rivers Ranch in Eagle Idaho a call (208) 939-6065 to book a Fly Fishing Day Trip on the Owyhee.


TIPS:  Nymphing will produce fish until you see bugs on top and fish rising to eat. Then it’s time to put the nymphs away and tie on a dry! It’s all about the 3 P’s of fly fishing; presentation, presentation, presentation.
