Big Wood River Fishing Report
Just a quick update for the Big Wood River: The Wood has dropped to 620 cfs and should drop even more as cooler weather moves in. While the Wood is fishable now, it should be far easier to wade in another week or so about when the Green Drakes should happen. This really should be one of the better Green Drake years we have had in recent times on the Wood due to the lower/fishable water levels. Stuff your boxes now and stay tuned. Meanwhile, there are a ton of Green Drake nymphs in shin deep water up and down the Wood and the nymphing has not been bad despite the swift water. Below is an image of a small sampling of Green Drake Nymphs found in the Big Wood River yesterday near Hailey, Idaho. Our favorite Green Drake Nymph pattern is Umpqua's #12 Epoxy Back Green Drake Nymph.
