June 23, 2015 – River Report

The Elk River is fishing hot hot hot!!! I have not seen the dry fly fishing on the Elk River this good for over 10 years. Banker hours are the go with fishing getting real good around 11:00 a.m. to about 5 or 6:00p.m.

Golden Stone flies, Yellow Sally’s and Skwalas are everywhere during the day and evenings. The evening fishing has been lighting up with Western Green Drakes, and Gray Drakes.

Best flies are the Royal Wulff and Western green drakes in big sizes 8,10. The Golden stone fly patterns that seem to be producing are also large in sizes 4-8. Patterns are California Blonde, Orange Stimulators, Orange Seducer, Tri Wing, Orange PMX, Royal Wulff, Western Green drake. Nymphs are good in the morning with Kyles Golden Stone nymph and green drakes nymphs are producing the best, all in sizes 8-10.Egg patterns will produce lots of good size Bull trout. Streamer fishing has been exceptionally good on various patterns in White and Olive sizes being #2-6.

Drop in for the local hot spots as we are on the river every day now. Shop is open 7 days/week.
