Latest fishing report
The water levels are low in many places throughout the river. Fish seem to be congregating in the deeper pockets of water. Egg patterns are the best bet because the brown trout are spawning. You should be able to catch fish with other nymph patterns. Dry fly fishing will slow down as the weather get colder. Watch a short video about Recognizing and Protecting Brown Trout Spawning Areas.
Law enforcement officers are still encountering anglers who think they are okay to fish in the river on posted private property, but who are actually trespassing. You must have written permission to fish waters that flow through posted private property. If you're fishing in a Walk-in Access area, make sure you obtain a free Walk-in Access authorization number.
