The South Fork of the Boise is at its normal winter flows of 302 CFS. We are seeing some good baetis hatches along with a few midges in the mid-afternoon and evenings depending on the day. Nymphing has been the most productive technique, try using a stonefly pattern like a rubber leg or leech with a small pheasant tail, zebra midge, or copper john as a dropper. Streamer fishing has picked up in the deeper holes with natural colored sculpin patterns and baitfish patterns. Remember it’s barbless single hook only on this stretch of river.

TIPS:  Look for those overcast, rainy days for the best late fall Baetis hatches.

Stop by or call our Boise Fly Shop for up to date information on where to fish and what to use. (208) 939-6065
