11/04/16 River Report
River Flow 323 CFS - Visibility Clear - AM Water Temp 48'F. - Today marks the start of a perfect weekend up here on the Housy! The weather looks good all weekend and the river is in great shape! Expect to find BWOs on the water and October caddis later in the day. It is also a great time so fish some bigger streamers to entice the bigger fish as they get ready to spawn. It's also time to begin fishing Egg Patterns as trout are starting to get in the spawning mode. Search the water in the morning by swinging streamers to find the most aggressive fish. If you don't get any takes on streamers then switch over to egg or nymph patterns and fish the water more closely. Come on up this weekend to Cornwall Bridge and enjoy a beautiful October day catching Big Rainbows on the Housy !! 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 !!
BWO's showing mid-morning thru the afternoon. - BWO CDC Emergers are the ticket for picky risers. - An effective day time technique is to swing soft hackles to sipping rises. - This is a perfect way to imitate swimming crippled BWO nymphs. - October Caddis in the late afternoon. - 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 an Egg Pattern as the second fly.- Swing streamers for Trout behind exposed boulders in all the deeper riffles & pools. - Streamer fishing is a great way to cover water and to find fish. - Go back and deep nymph over any river section that produced takes on streamers.
