White river is producing fish in inconsistent flows recently. I had a few clients in town and had a very solid week of fishing. Flows are varying with the weather which is much more common that what we have seen here the past two years. Last year was a year of very low flows and 2016 was flood water, opposite ends of the spectrum but good streamer fishing either way. Several fish in the 16 to 23 inch range made it to hand over the week.

It seemed the fish were willing on almost every color of fly this. We caught fish on white, white/olive, yellow, yellow/olive, yellow/brown, olive and black…pick your poison. As light conditions change I find best color changes also, so don’t be afraid to switch out if things get slow.

As always streamer fishing is a day to day (sometimes hour to hour) bite so be ready to grind if you want to maximize your opportunity. If you can grind and stick with it, you typically are rewarded. This is a phenomenal brown trout fishery. I do have availability after March 1st this year, and I will be here until the end of March. If you are looking to escape the long northern winter, this is an easy trip.
