Fishing up river with a good water flows through the week days have made for good fishing all day. Fish have been healthy and with full belly’s. With the Midge hatches coming on stronger and more often through the days it has been my only fly the last few trips. A standard zebra midge or a color of the days choice, running it with our 6 foot midging rig and another 16-20 inches to your dropper works really well in slower runs through seams on gravel bars. Fish have been very shallow so start close to shore when you start to fish then work your way out. Nymphing rigs with anywhere from a #1-4 split shot depending on speed and depths works well on nice fish on the outer sides of the seams in deeper water. On my lunch breaks I always can bomb a 200 grain depth charge with a olive flash woolly bugger and hook into a couple so don’t forget about streamers. Hit a nice swing of water were you can throw into current and let it swing back into a seam or eddy and start stripping. Fish have been hitting it on the swing with both rigs so with the midges wait that extra 5 seconds and let it swing up at the end of your run and you might be surprised. For streamers be ready on the swing to set before it reaches your strip back in.
The Walk In has been fishing really well and producing a wide variety of fish. The rig of choice is a short Nymphing rig. Glow bugs and Midges have been working well. The weekends have been running lower water flows then the weekdays so it makes alot more nice little runs and kick outs at the top of the boulder field. At the back side of any rock that makes a seam or shoot I have been throwing above them allowing my flys to get down and run it through every one starting close to shore and working my way out as far as you want or have the energy to handle. Just above the Paria is a nice gravel bar that has been fishing good as well. The midge color always will change thru the day the main key for fishing success on lees ferry up river or down is a dead drift presention is everything. If your not getting a drag free drift (dead drift) your missing out on fish. If you need help or not sure how this works were always available to teach you how. Tell next time keep your lines tight.
