More Current Conditions

For once, this past cold snap has not shut all of the fishing down. The smaller streams and creeks did not lock back up again with ice. Water flows on Sandy Creek are at ideal levels for fishing at this moment. As always fishing Sandy at this time of the year is a coverage game. The more pools you fish through the more fish you have a chance of catching. Flies for Sandy; stay with size 6 bunny flies and size 8 egg patterns.

The Oak Orchard River was not affected by the past cold snap. Water flows on the Oak continue to slowly come down and clear. Fish remain spread out through all the pools from the dam on down river. Most of these fish have experienced at least some fishing pressure by now. It would be recommended to fish with lighter tippits and smaller flies for the time being.
Salmon River, water flows on the Salmon River is being increased to day Friday. Water flow for this weekend will be 1150 CFS. The increased water flows will help to wake up the fish in the upper River and poll some new fish through the lower River. Your best fishing over the weekend will most likely be found in the lower River. The DSR has been expressing good fishing on a consistent basis. This may be a good weekend to consider fishing this section of river. For flies try black stone fly nymphs, egg patterns, bunny leeches.

There is still days available if anyone is interested in taking advantage of our winter fishing special
