Flows have been pinched way back to conserve water behind Boysen Dam for next year’s irrigation season. Water temps are in the high 30’s to low 40’s.

Nymph and streamer fishing is the name of the game with some dry action using BWO’s and Midge’s.

Book a guided trip with North Fork Anglers and we will show you how big the trout can be!
