Brown Drakes Have Started

Yup, that's right, Brown Drakes started last night. It's the earliest start we've had in a long time and thank goodness for the early opening day of fishing date this year... Remember, the first Drake night is an emergence so expect a spinner fall tonight and most likely a spinner fall and an emergence.


The Brown Drake hatch is generally a linear hatch meaning it starts low and works it's way upstream. Start by checking out the Picabo Bridge tonight--that is the farthest downstream public access with Drakes--and decide how far upstream you want to go from there. Remember, the Brown Drake hatch essentially does not cross the HWY 20 Bridge. So..., the area to focus on is from the Picabo Bridge all the way upstream to the HWY 20 Bridge.


We are fully stocked with Brown Drakes, floatant, beer, leaders, etc and will be open until 8 pm every night. We also have private access to great Brown Drake water on Silver Creek--it's probably the best Drake water on the Creek. It's $100 a rod and $50 a rod on a guided trip.

We even have a few drakes flying around the shop at the moment!
