    What kind of info are you looking for? Where to go or what flies to use? In general, the fishing opportunities can be good on the main river with the delayed harvest season ongoing. There are a decent number of stocked 'bows in the river right now including some nice sized ones. Here is one from a few weeks back.



    I just like to drive the river road until I see a pool or section that suits my fancy and then start fishing. There aren't many secrets as to where the fish are and usually you need to cover some water to find them.

    Delayed harvest fish are not real picky for the most part. I stuck with wooly buggers (#6-#10) and BHPTs (#12-#14) and did well. If you see fish and are not getting strikes, try some midges on them (#18-#20).

    Egg patterns are lethal on pellet heads.
