Fishing Report 6/5/24

“If you ain’t first, you’re last.”


A wise man once uttered those words, and they certainly hold true during the Brown Drake hatch. We expect the Brown Drake hatch to EXPLODE at any time, so we encourage you to be vigilant!


Even if the bugs don’t show up tonight, we can’t think of a better place than the banks of the Creek to spend the evening. The weather is spectacular, the sunsets are immaculate, and the camaraderie on the water is truly special.


We’ve got all the brown drake essentials here in the shop; a fantastic selection of flies, leaders, and tippet, bug spray, sun block, custom Picabo Angler Buffs, and Bug Stopper hoodies from Simms. Come down to the shop and take a look.


Silver Creek continues to fish well throughout its entirety, with PMDs, Blue-Winged Olives, and Calibaetis remaining the primary hatch activity. Large foam beetles and ants are still a great fly choice, especially on days with a bit of a breeze.


It seems as if no one section of the creek is out-producing any other; at select times, the S-Turns, Kilpatrick Pond, the upper Conservancy, Sullivan’s Lake, the Willows, and Point of Rocks have all been hot spots.


The Big Wood, Little Wood, and Big Lost river systems remain high and a bit off-color, and great fishing on those waters is still a few weeks away.


Floating the South Fork of the Boise below Anderson Ranch Dam has been very good recently. Big foam bugs that imitate cicadas and stoneflies have been effective, and nymphing with a big Rubber Legs is a great bet right now. Floating the river is the best way to go at the moment.


Keep your eye on our web site and our social media for up to the minute Brown Drake information or give us a call in the shop at 208-788-3536.




Happy Fishing Everyone!
