Flows are staying steady and the river is fishing well from boats or if wading the edges. Clarity is good below Buffalo Bill Dam through Cody down river to Sage Creek and the fly fishing has been very good in this section of the Lo Sho.  The river becomes more dirty as the river flows to Powell, WY.

Caddis, BWO’s, midges and golden stones are active below the dam and through town. Evening hatch activity has been spectacular!

Flows:  2044 cfs.  

Wet flies; Firebead sowbug, Purple and Peacock Prince, San Juan Worms, Midge pupa, Pheasant Tails, Bloody Mary’s, Jigged Soft Hackles, Anellids,  Zebra Midge, Size 10-14 tan, black or red head North Fork Specials, Rubber legs, streamers and leech patterns.
