Access Info

Excellent fishing when rains do not muddy the water. Dry fly fishing is starting to pick up! Good fishing can still be had using larger flies and lures. Large  woolly buggers fished in slack water is a great way to catch a large fish! Cat fishing in the lower reaches has also picked up using typical baits such as cut bait, livers, or catfish nuggets.
