As of now, it looks like there will still be ZERO float trips until 5/21/20. We will let you know if that changes to sooner or becomes extended out to health necessities.

We are probably a week away from the first salmonflies in the Maupin area and 10-12 days out from them being to the Trout Creek area, maybe even WS. Exciting!

March Browns are still out, but dwindling. PMD’s and Caddis are taking over for summer. Pale Evening Duns are also just beginning to pop, and you’re more likely to seen them mid-day until it gets hot out than in the evening. Purple Haze, Comparadun, Sparkle Dun and Parachute PMD are all good for the mayflies, and X Caddis and Elk Hair Caddis for Caddis.
Nymphs are outstanding right now with Stonefly Nymphs taking the top spot.
