Boise River In-Town:

Flows are finally shaping up, they are currently at 1,320 cfs. We still do not recommend walk and wading. Streamer fishing has been producing a little bit, but not much. We should see another drop soon, when it gets to below 1,000 cfs that should be a great time to do some walk and wading using attractor style nymphs in size #14 and #16. Streamers in single or articulated patterns in olive, black and brown.

South Fork of the Boise:

Flows are currently 1,620 cfs. Hitting the banks with terrestrials (ants/beetles), stoneflies (salmonflies/golden stones), and caddis should do the trick.

Owyhee River:

Flows are currently at 191cfs. Primary hatches consist of midges BWOS and PMDs. Caddis are present to varying degrees as well. Dry fly opportunities have been good although still inconsistent, but they are there if you are trying to find fish looking up. Nymphing as usual remains most productive and streamers are always an option. For nymphs you can try using a voodoo midge #16 or #18, cardinal midge #16 or #18, holo-point jig in purple, or a split case pmd. Things are going to “a bit” busy this weekend, stay safe and have fun!

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.
