We actually got some low water for a few days last week from wednesday thru friday. The fish sure like it and bite well. Sulphers are still emerging on the upper end of the river from the dam down to the narrows. Not as prolific as they were and all the flies associated with the hatch are working well. Trout Crack, San Juan Worms, various midges and even some caddis nymps are attracting the attention of some good fish. Did get to do some sight fishing on friday with a gentleman from Washington State. Hooked and landed a bunch of fish in a four 1/2 hour period on the low water. We also did hook and play a decent brown trout for a few minutes and got to see it in the water but ….. it got off. Fishing has been good from the dam all the way down to buffalo shoals.

The Ranchetts access has been improved and there are some pics in the gallery. I did use that boat ramp today and parking is being expanded there. Our guide association see http://whiterivertroutguides.com has put in some picnic tables and fire rings for public use. We do ask that if you use them please respect them as others will use them in the future.
