11/14/16 River Report
River Flow 275 CFS - Visibility Clear - AM Water Temp 40'F. - Sunny, with a high near 58.- Southwest wind 3-6 mph. - Hard to believe it's mid November with the warm weather on tap this week! Great days for fishing!! Lots of great reports lately! - Search the water in the morning by swinging streamers to find aggressive Rainbows and Browns. - Then switch over to a big Stone Fly nymph with an Egg dropper and fish the water more closely. - Egg Patterns are fishing well as trout get into spawning mode. - At this time of year it's best to get on the river a little later in the morning. - This gives the sun a chance to warm up the river a couple degrees. - The fish will become more active in the slightly warmer water. - HOUSY Trout are putting on the fall feed bag !!
Try nymphing deep during the day with a two fly rig.- On your two fly nymph rig start with Rubber Leg Stone Fly nymph and an Egg Pattern as a dropper. - Streamer fishing is a great way to cover water and to find fish. - Swing streamers for Trout behind exposed boulders in all the deeper riffles & pools. - Then go back and deep nymph over any river section that produced takes on streamers.
AM River Water Temp 40' - River Flow 275 CFS. - Morning Air Temp 24'- Today's Air Temp High 58' - Tonight's Air Temp Low 39' - Some much needed rain possible which is going to make for a great week here on the Housy.
