Turned a Bit Colder: Norfork Oxygen Report

We’ve had a cold front come through and were hoping for some rain that we really didn’t get.  I’m sure most of you all also got the front and If you needed the rain I hope you got it.  Our fish for sure need this cold weather as the spawn seems to have stalled on the White River.  I don’t know if it’s the water temps or what but this colder weather  can’t hurt. Below is the Norfork Lake Oxygen report from the Striper Club.  It’s looking much better than it was and no where near as bad as in years past.

On Friday morning the Glitter Midge was the killer fly of the day.  The glitter thread has the wire built in so you don’t have to add it.

I have 25 years experience guiding on the White River and have taught 100's of folks how to fly fish. I welcome newcomers. My casting instruction technique is simple, gentle, easy going and highly productive. All trips are catch and release only.
