Break out the two-handers, November has arrived. Cooler – but not cold – temperatures over the last week have improved the swing bite, and that cold air we need is in the forecast for later this week. Trout Spey fishing should go from good to great over the next 2 weeks.
Last weekend saw many spey rods out on the river. Both locals and anglers traveling from out of the area are out exploring the long runs with the long rod. We had several guided spey trips out last week as well. We love to see everyone getting out of the boat and three stepping through those runs.
The river is fishing top to bottom right now, though Pelican to Cascade is a little much for a day dedicated to the swing. Too much water. But we highly recommend everything from the Dam to Pelican. As the days get shorter you’ll want to keep that float short as well. Spend your time fishing not rowing.
