Starting from deep within the Lava Flows in the Cascade Range, this cold, gin-clear river cuts its way through ferns and towering evergreens. Wild rainbow trout are accompanied by hatchery rainbows which makes this a great river to turn fishing into catching!
Nymphs will likely be the only reliable fishing method for the rest of the year. Start with a Possie Bugger or stonefly nymph and follow it with a worm pattern, egg pattern, size 18-22 midge, or size 16-20 mayfly nymph. Our favorites are the Pheasant Tail, Juju Baetis, Copper John, and Psycho Prince. You may find a few fish rising to blue winged olives but it likely will not be consistent or predictable. Sculpins and Wooly Buggers are always a good thing to have around. Flows continue to spike and drop, which means water quality is a bit tough to predict.
