Boise River In-Town:

The Boise River in-town is still high and is unsafe to fish.

South Fork of the Boise:

Flows are at 2,400 cfs and finally floatable. Nymphing with perdigons and rubber legs have been producing. You can also try salmon fly patterns tight against the banks. There have been some caddis and blue wings hatching, it just depends on the weather.

Owyhee River:

Flows are great at 170 cfs. Primary hatches consist of blue wings, pmds, and caddis. The caddis fishing has been best in the afternoon. Leeches and streamers have been finding fish in the morning. Dry fly opportunities are starting to ramp up with fish looking up. Terrestrials (ants and beetles mostly) are finding fish as well. As usual, nymphing remains the most productive.

Have fun and stop by TRR Outfitters in Eagle or call (208) 939-6065 to stock up on some flies, purchase your Owyhee fishing license, or book a guided fishing trip.
