Boise River Fishing Report – July 25, 2015

Anderson Ranch Tail water: Flows have stabilized to 1710cfs and will most likely stay at that till irrigation season is done in September. That being said, it’s big bug season and running varieties of chubbys and terrestrials with droppers. Run a Big Chubby or hopper pattern to a dropper about 2ft. Caddis Pupa and pheasant tail nymphs size 14-18 have been producing. Pound the banks and work the side channels! Caddis and Pinks have been going strong from 2 pm till dark. Boise In-Town: Flows have dropped to fishable levels and are expected to stay stable through the summer. Nymphing and streamer fishing can be productive during the heat of the day, while finding risers in the mornings and evening is a great option. Look for structure such as overhanging branches that put shade on the water, the fish should be seeking that shelter all summer long. Fish the coolest times of the day, early morning or late evening as the sun is setting. The shade on the water gives the angler a nice advantage. Overhanging branches and woody structure produce the most fish every summer. Check the water temperature before fishing the lower stretch in town. Temps have been

Henry’s Fork Fly Fishing Report for June 6, 2016

Lower Henry’s Fork Fishing has been very good. We are using big bugs with a nymph or two after that. Chubby, Golden Stone, or a big attractor with a WD-40, Zebras, pheasant Tails, rubber legs, ect. The green drake hatch is coming any day, due to the hot weather. We saw sporadic golden stones & yellow sallies as well… Big fish are still gorging on the nymphs and eating the occasional adult pattern.  The water clarity is fairly good, but look for some color to be the norm over the next couple of weeks from melting snow in the high country. Upper Henry’s Fork Your best bet is still a Chubby or Golden Stone with a dropper rig.  You can use Flashback Pheasant Tail, WD-40, Brown Zebras, Rubber Legs (towards Ashton).  Yellow Sallies have been spotted up high as well. The evening hatch can be quite fun as well!  Try a Caddis or PMD’s.   Harriman State Park is closed until June 15th.   Check the forecast before heading out.  Over the next week, expect hot weather with chances of T-storms.  Make sure & stock up on Sunscreen & Bug spray.  Check our Lower Henry’s Fork Hatch Chart or our Upper Henry’s Fork

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.

Boise River Fishing Report – May 16, 2016

The South Fork Boise River is closed until 5/28. Boise River in town flows have increased again to higher levels. Wade fishing can be hazardous but fishing from the bank can be productive. Come into the Eagle Fly Shop and pick up Mongrel Meat, Boogie man, & Cheeches Leech – Articulated Streamers!  Nymphing your favorite beadhead nymphs could pay off as well. USE: Nymphs & Streamers.  Midges, Caddis, & PMD’s. The post Boise River Fishing Report – May 16, 2016 appeared first on TRR Outfitters.

East Idaho Fly Fishing Report – May 16, 2016

Henry’s Fork Fishing Report Welcome to summer! The warm weather has really sparked an early explosion of Salmonflies on the lower Henry’s Fork, and by most accounts, the fishing has been very good.  Big fish are gorging on the nymphs and eating the occasional adult pattern and look for this trend to continue during the next two weeks or so. The caddis has also made a showing during the past month and most anglers are throwing caddis pupas and larvae in the green and olive color to hungry fish.  The water clarity is fairly good, but look for some color to be the norm over the next couple of weeks. Teton River Fishing Report The Teton River is experiencing the first real run-off of the season and should be off-color for the foreseeable near future.  Those anglers wanting to float and walk the Teton lately have been successful with streamers and larger flashy nymphs and worms. South Fork Snake River Fishing Report As the looming run-off approaches, the water out of Palisades Reservoir has been steadily increasing with flows reaching 12,000cfs as of this morning.  From the varied reports of many of those fishing the South Fork of the Snake River,

East Idaho Fly Fishing Report: Runoff Scenario for Summer Fishing

By all accounts, Eastern Idaho is seeing its first real runoff of the year, and most of the feeder creeks and tributaries to the Henry’s Fork, South Fork and the Teton River are dirty and high. After recent snow and rain storms in February and March, snow pack levels for Eastern Idaho are all over or near 100% for this time of the year. This above-average precipitation is leading to a positive outlook for the water levels during our upcoming fishing season. Back–to-back months of above average precipitation across most of Idaho boosted the water supply outlook according to the April report released by the Idaho Natural Resources Conservation Service, which means Idaho farmers and fishermen may shake hands once again! The Upper Snake River basin as a whole should see early and continuing runoff if this weather trend continues with warmer days and more wet precipitation, and by all accounts, the Upper Snake’s water supply is in great shape to handle whatever weather this summer may bring. This wonderful amount of early-season water may tease us and help deliver not only a fantastic mayfly season, but we may also finally see a hot hopper season to boot! This higher

Boise River Fishing Report – April 14, 2016

The Boise River in town is flowing at 5,410 cfs (what does cfs mean?) To give you a perspective, the median flow is 854cfs and flood stage is 7000 cfs.  We suggest to keep off the river until it drops!  The water is cold, deep, & flowing fast!  There are also trees that are in the flow, which makes things very dangerous. Keep in mind, the South Fork of the Boise is closed to fishing until May 28. Sorry for the bad news.  Stay safe and stay off the Boise River, for now… As of today, Lucky Peak, Aarowrock, and Anderson Ranch are all above 75% full.  With a lot of snowpack in the high country, the flows should last for the next 4 – 6 weeks.
