The Fall recently has had a couple of releases of fish both near the ranger station and near the tubes to get the fishing a bit more spread out. If targeting this area it is smart to start and one end and work your way towards the other. Headwaters down to Campground is a great way to start your day, and end it at the tubes. Small dries, small nymphs, and some larger streamer patterns have all been turning heads. BWO’s, maybe a possible trickling of PMDs, midges, and zonker patterns. Come and stop in at the shop for any recommendations.
