Been a great August barring some floating vegetation. Grey Reef and Miracle Mile are fishing very well. Fremont is fishing and will be back to its old self soon.
Morning Trico hatches have made great nymphing and good dry fly opportunities. Late day caddis are still doing their thing but not moving much until evening. This is prompting the use of some dirty tactics for afternoon action. Worms, leeches, crawdads and scud on a 7′ rig is working very well. Earlier we are much shorter and lighter.
I said goodbye to Carp Jon yesterday. I have had that boat for 8 years and it was set up for lots of different fishing. Randy bought it and will be exercising in on the carp flats in Montana and in the Clearwater River, ID for steelhead. Hope he cross trains for some walleye as well!
September is getting pretty busy so call if you are interested in hunting or fishing dates.
Sept 15 -30 is 2012 Sage Grouse season. We have thousands of acres of exclusive private hunting ground that is super productive for sage grouse and the regions best guides. This makes a great cast and blast!
