Dream Stream

Rating - Very_Good   

Monday, Jan 23 2023
As of 01/19/23. Dream Stream flows are seasonably low (58 cfs) and the fishing is technical. With sub-freezing overnight temperatures and morning slush, locating actively feeding trout can be a challenge. For the best results, fish the warmest hours of the day and focus on your depth. During the morning, trout are sluggish due to cold water temps and slush/ice runoff occurring until 11 am. As air temps rise and the water clears up, trout become more active and clean presentations are more achievable. In regards to depth, trout will hug the bottom of the river most of the day. Knowing this, we recommend starting with a heavy nymph rig, whether that means adding extra split shot or using tungsten bead nymphs, thats up to you. If youre not seeing any action or if temperatures rise considerably in the afternoon, drop some weight and drift your flies through the upper half of the water column. Either way, experimentation is key. Tiny midge larva and pupa patterns have been the most consistent lately, but dont hesitate to experiment with small baetis or attractor patterns. Baetis and attractor patterns are great lead flies when trout need a little extra encouragement. Before you hit the Dream, make sure to have some Bling Midges, Miracle Midges, Neon Nightmares, Blood Midges, Mercury Midges, Mercury Black Beauties, Top Secrets, Chocolate Foam Back Emergers, RS2s, JuJu Baetis, Pheasant Tails, Rainbow Warriors and orange scuds on hand. Recommended flies:lood Midge (#18-22) Bling Midge (#18-22) Mercury Midge (#18-22) Black Beauty (#18-22) Zebra Midge (#18-22) Top Secret Midge (#18-22) Jujubee Midge (#18-22) JuJu Baetis (#18-20) RS2 (#18-22) Darth Baetis (#18-20) Barr's Emerger (#18-20) Chocolate Foam Back Emerger (#18-22) Pat's Rubber Legs (#12-14) pink/green scud Mini Leech San Juan Worm yarn egg Mercury Pheasant Tail (#16-20) Guide's Choice Hare's Ear (#16-18) red Copper John (#16-18) Rainbow Warrior (#16-20) Perdigon (#16-18) Griffiths Gnat (#18-20) Parachute Adams (#18-22) Parachute BWO (#18-20)
