Late August Fishing Report

Date: August 21, 2018
Flows: 3000 CFS
Water Temp: 63.5 F

Pretty darn good out there. Rainy and cold today. The trico hatch should be better later on this week with warmer temperatures forecasted. The cooler mornings have delayed the hatch for a while. There are still bugs, just not a ton of fish up. They’ll be back later this week, I promise. Nymph fishing has been solid. Fish are where they’re supposed to be. Standard bugs, nothing out of the ordinary here. Sow bugs, scuds, sunken tricos, pseudos. Shorten up the nymph rig a little bit, 5-6 feet of leader. With clouds and smoke in the air streamers are a good choice right now. Smaller bugs are getting the most eats.  Just get out on the river and enjoy the day.

They are very picky on what they are eating so give ’em all you got. Hoppers are producing some nice healthy fish. There’s hoppers everywhere…

PLEASE LEAVE THESE FISH ALONE. Avoid walking on the cleaned out patches of gravel and at least 15 feet below the clean patches. The eggs need time to hatch. On another…

Not a lot has changed here on the ‘Horn. The flows have been stable for several weeks now. Same goes for the water temp. Will the flows and temp increase? Temp? Yes for sure. Flows? Maybe. We’ve had quite the cold snap here in the big city of Fort Smith. Rain and some snow in…
