The mouse is still working great and all of the normal wet flies.

It was so great to start the season with a fun group of guests and have a fantastic week of fishing. This week was all about fishing the mouse pattern for rainbows and the the bows did not disappoint us.We had aggressive fish all week!

Comments for the Week

The river is high but very fishy and it is clear and dropping! Fishing is fantastic and it should only get better as the river drops and the salmon show up in larger numbers.
