On-And-Off Fishing

The fishing the last few days has been a on and off deal. The weather has played a big part of it, warm water temperatures and bright sun. Even on days when there was not a lot of fish activity, you still can find a few salmon sitting in the pockets and deeper pools. A good fishing tip for slow days is, if the fish are not moving then you need to move. Do not sit in one spot and wait for some thing to happen, go hunting and find some fish that will play.
There has been some good rain from Friday night through Saturday night. This rain has caused an increase in a water flow of about a 100 CFS. The increase in water flow has brought the water temperature back down to 61 degrees and has triggered a good run of fish through the DSR today Sunday. When fishing on bright sunny days stay with size 6 black and silver or Brown and copper woolly buggers. When fishing the deeper pools and pockets you may want to try a size 4 boss or a size 6 or 8 stone fly.
The best fishing has been the lower river in the morning and the upper river in the afternoon. I do not expect this pattern to change in the near future. The lower fly fishing zone will open at first light on Tuesday morning, this will gives us another option. Opening day in the lower fly fishing zone will experience intense fishing pressure. If you're interested in fishing the lower fly fishing zone consider waiting a few days for the fishing pressure to calm down.

Note: If you are thinking about fishing for November Brown trout, you will need to act soon, I still have a few days left for November 20, 26, 28, 29, 30 are still available.
I still have prime days available in September 20, 23, 28 and October 3, 8, 25. If you are interested in experiencing Chinook and Coho salmon fishing, call the fly shop the number is 585-352-4775 my cell number is 585-233-0436 or e-mail me at
