There are still some late summer runs in the upper Sky. The water temp is in the low 40's now so we have been using tips and larger flies.

A few winter fish are showing in the lower river and within three weeks they should start coming into the river in decent numbers.


I was on the river Saturday but was not up as high as Money Creek. There still should be fish holding up there though.

You can tell many of those on the board by their Wild Steelhead Coalition stickers.

Consider it in the mail.
