Hopper Action

The hopper action is on in the mornings on the White River.  Lots of good fish are being caught at this time on the White River in the mornings.  I know!  The mornings?  Go figure!  Normally this happens in the afternoon and generally when there is a wind but the best action at this tie is in the mornings with a little fog on the river.  It stops as the sun rises or if generation is jacked up a bit.

High Water Fly Fishing=Bigger And Better Fish

  If you are one of -THOSE- fisherman who limit themselves to a strictly wade fishing diet then you are starving yourself of some great fishing.  The White and Norfork rivers are running full bore after some heavy rains in May.  The White River is flowing at 28,600 CFS or roughly the equivalent of 9 full generators.  Its a wide and fast flowing river and Big Water means BIGGER fish on the White.  

   This is nothing new for the White this decade.  2008 saw some big flows with water the equivalent of 12 units and again in 2011 with flows the equivalent of 14 and 16 units.  If the truth be known 2011 saw some fantastic fishing on those flows (check out the 2016 gallery).  So this is the third time the White River has seen this action.  Dinky little stocker bows are few and far between but the better, bigger, longer fish are taking flies on the long rod.  The oxygen levels are great and the fish are fighting mad and healthy.  

   So if you are looking for some great action on the long rod with some better and bigger fish then the White River is the place.  The temps are great, the scenery is beautiful, the locals are friendly and the fish are taking flies.
