The Drakes have arrived! Last night we saw a handful of spinners about an hour before sunset. Only a few fish came to the surface, but now that the train has left the station, there's no going back. Tonight, may or may not be a good night depending on today's storms. Keep an eye on the weather and watch the report here. If the storms clear early, it could be an epic night...if they linger then think about the weekend and the rest of this week! The weekend weather looks good for the Drake!

We went and looked for Brown Drake Nymphs yesterday. We found a few very ripe ones in the Picabo Bridge stretch. Maybe a week or so away from hatching, maybe just a few days...Close enough that anglers wanting to catch the first night of action should start watching Saturday night. Some warm weather could be what fires the proverbial starting gun! We checked the Willows section of the Creek as well, and although we found more numbers of nymphs, they weren't nearly as mature as what we found closer to Picabo. Our favorite patterns are on the counter, stop by and see us!
Here's a series of videos on Silver Creek access points we put together last year. Hopefully this answers some questions and even helps out with the "Where Should I Go?" questions you may have prior to heading down to Silver Creek.
This video series starts with the bottom end of Silver Creek at Priest Rapids and works its way all the way upstream to The Nature Conservancy section.
