Flows are hanging around 100cfs as of report time. The cold weather periods have really put these fish on the chew big time. Water temps recorded during the last snowstorm were at 54 degrees and this has sent the trout into winter-feeding mode for the time being. Perch fry patterns, San Juan Worms, PT's, Midges, are all good bets here. Our broke-back midge patterns have been fooling these wary fish left and right recently. Fish the deeper runs and pockets to lock on to the big boys and girls of the river. Vary your presentations a little and dissect the feeding lanes into small sections to get into them. Mark "The Man" McKinley and Bob "Lunker" Marshall drove over from Las Vegas to experience the famed trout of the E. W. on a cold and snowy day. The dynamic duo ended up spanking 32 trout between them with 3 being over 22". Bob took big fish honors with back-to-back browns and battled it out with a third fish that ended up giving him the tail fin. Now is the time folks to get up here and catch that fish of a lifetime you've been waiting for. We have guides at the ready to put you on this pristine fishery.
