Mike With A Big Bow

20 inch bow with some attitude!
Jared, Mike ( and I floated the river today. The water at the beginning of the float was around 1400cfs but by day's end it dropped to 900 cfs. The water temperature was great for July, A cool 58 degrees for the majority of the day. The morning was extremely productive fishing below the indicators, we landed 14 fish with Mike bringing home the biggest rainbow I have scene on the river. It was a stout 20 inch fish with a HEAVY body. Kudos for the rowing ninja for connecting on this hog!

Once the afternoon came the river filled up with boats galore and the fishing got tough. We did manage another 8-10 fish on nymph's but it wasn't as hot as the morning. Overall a 20+ fish day on the river is something you must appreciate, awesome day on the water!

It doesn't get much better then this!
On a side note the surface activity was limited to a few sporadic rises throughout the day. Saw a few Cahills and many more Slate Drakes. The small BWO also came off in good numbers but the fish didn't seem interested on this day.

  1. By reading fishing reports often and using a map of the area, you can plot any patterns of where the fish are being caught and plan a trip using the information gathered and any other useful information that you may have for that particular body of water. By reading fishing reports published by guide services, you can fish in the areas that they use for your benefit.
