Weather is shaping up and Spring is here. With rising water levels and temps the streamer bite is on while we wait for Hendricksons to kick off our dry fly season.At this time of year fish can be anywhere. On a recent trip we had fish in the wood on the banks and in the middle of the river. Cover your bases and fish it all. As far as colors for streamers I preach,” anything will work if you fish it confidently", and that remains true.So get on the water and enjoy the hunt and remember, One cast can change everything.JeffARO Fishing Guide

Although it's been a cold last few days, you should be able to catch trout this coming week if you cast your lines towards the deeper portions of the river where the fish are hiding. We have heard good reports of nymphs and some streamers working to catch the big ones out there- if you're brave enough to stand the cold!
