Fishing Report October 11, 2019
The fishing between COLD fronts has been really good
this past week.
It usually shuts down for the day when the front
comes in, and for
a day or so after the front. Once the COLD

There have been
really good numbers of fish up in the North Arm,
from the North
Landing area, all the way up to Green Banks.
They can be found in

top fly, the best
producer has been a gray Shaft, or SuperFly.

wide variety of fish up north, everything from 8
inch stockers, up to
20+ inch Rainbows, Cutts, and Browns. If you
get up here, there is no
reason to get out at the crack of dawn.
Morning lows are usually in
the 20's, so it takes a while for the fish to get
