Boise River – In Town Fishing Report

Boise River in town: Streamer fishing early in the morning or late evening will give you a chance at a big boise river brown or rainbow.

Streamer fishing should move some of the bigger browns and bows but nymphing will be most productive with your standard nymphs. Pheasant Tails, Hares ears, Zebra midges.

South Fork of the Boise River  Fishing Report

Anderson Ranch Tail Water: Look in the tailouts, foam lines, and slower moving water mid afternoon for fish sipping BWO’s and midges. These rises can be very subtle.

Flows are holding steady at 299cfs and will remain around 300 for the winter. Fishing as of late has been great in the afternoon when temps warm up. Nymphing as always will be most productive this time of the year with small sized baetis nymphs and zebra mides in sizes 18-22. Try a rubber leg to a zebra midge or baetis nymph for best results. In the afternoon you’re seeing productive BWO hatches depending on where you’re at on the river and daytime temps.
