Beautiful fish full of fight. Can be very technical. There are many access sites maintained nicely by the state. Check the shops for what is working.

We have relatives that live within walking distance of the river and try to visit often. The trout fishing is Wonderful and plentiful right now. We caught our limit within an hour and headed back to house. Respect the other fishermen and the river and you will truly enjoy yourself. The fish taste great ( especially if you have an... More

The river was filled with grass when we were there, but the fish are in there. Go into this expecting to clean your hook alot.

Drift fished 2 sections of the river on 3 different days with excellent guides from Frontier Anglers. Caught many (lost count) fish both drivting and from a few stops along the banks. Fish ranged from 9" to over 20" and were healthy and beautiful. Will do this again.

If you stay at lodging with a pet, confirm cleanliness with staff before leaving. Otherwise the next pet will mark your pets scent and you will be charged if management is duped.

Terrific river. Better fished from a boat, but there is bank fishing to be had. Fish Tales outfitter's Michael Stack would be a great choice. He's very good and works hard to provide clients an excellent day of fishing.

As flows improve and temperature rises, feeding strikes will be triggered. These fish are large, don't be afraid to use 3x tippet. You won't get as many strikes but you will be able... More
