10/21/16 River Report
River Flow 106 CFS - Visibility Clear - AM Water Temp 60'F. - What a day for fishing here on the Housy! The cloudy skies and warmer temperatures today will combine for solid fishing conditions. The bigger fish will be out during the day and the BWOs and ants should be all over the water. Come up to Cornwall Bridge and fish a Blue Wing Olive hatch on the Housy. - Fishing has been great in the Corner Pool, Monument, the Park & the Wall. - Other productive spots are Push-em Up, Garbage Hole, Cellar Hole, Sand Hole & the Elms. - Trout are putting on the fall feed bag !! - The fish are taking daytime BWO's on the top and CDC emergers in the film !! October caddis have been reported coming off near or just after dark. With the river flow at 106 CFS it is easy wading anywhere in the Housy. By all means necessary get up here and catch one of the last warm days to fish this year!
Trout are feeding all thru the TMA. - BWO's showing mid-day thru evening. - BWO CDC Emergers are the ticket for picky risers in the Park. - An effective day time technique is to swing soft hackles to sipping rises. - This is a perfect way to imitate swimming crippled BWO nymphs. - Also try nymphing deep during the day with a two fly rig. On your two fly nymph rig start with a BH Prince and add a small Pheasant Tail or Hares Ear as the second fly. Swing streamers for Trout behind exposed boulders in all the deeper riffles & pools. - Streamer fishing is the way to go during daylight hours for bigger fish.
