Boise River & Owyhee River Fishing Report, 5/19/23

Boise River In-Town: The Boise River in-town is very high and is unsafe to fish, it is currently around 5,600 cfs. South Fork of the Boise: The South Fork of the Boise River is closed until Memorial Weekend. Owyhee River: Flows are currently at 211 cfs. Primary hatches consist of midges and Bwo's. Caddis are present to varying degrees as well (Elk hair caddis #18). Dry fly opportunities have been spotty but are there if you are trying to find fish looking up. Nymphing, as usual, remains most productive (voodoo midge #16 or #18, cardinal midge #16 or #18, holo-point jig in purple, or a split case pmd) and streamers are always an option. 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.
