Spring has sprung on the Owyhee River

The Owyhee River is at 200 cfs today (April 13) and fishing exceptionally well.  We expect the water levels to continue at this level for the rest of the fishing season.  After fishing this river for over 30 years and guiding it for over 10 years, we are happy to report the river is back to it’s customary color of green.  Some folks are turned off by the color of the Owyhee, however it’s actually BETTER fishing!   If you want to fish with Dave, NOW is the time to do so!

The midges have been coming of very well, and the Baetis are beginning to show up.  The Skawala’s are mostly done,  but there are some remnants and the fish will eat eagerly.  The streamer fishing has been exceptional as well as hitting the banks with large terrestrial patterns.  Days are beginning to get longer and it seems our weather has leveled off with highs in the mid 50’s to 60’s and the best fishing to be had is late afternoons.

  1. Dreams on the Fly is a world class Fly Fishing Outfitters. I just got back from a 12 hr day of fishing for Browns and Bows with Jeff Smith (Guide). Not only did I catch my biggest Brown ever but I got over thirty of them all over 20 inches. Jeff is a top notch guide and made it for a fun day of “Dreams lived in my life”. I give this guide a ten. Thanks Jeff.
