10-18-14 As the hatchs slow down for winter it's time to look more towards the non-hatch nymphs like scuds, egg patterns, leeches and streamer patterns for you point flies. Midge's will once again become the predominate food source during the winter.

9-24-14 Personally went out to explore Gray Reef yesterday all the way from Alcova to Glenrock. River not only clears but less weeds as you go down river. I fished the trico hatch in the morning at the Reef and BWO hatch down by Glenrock in the evening. Also caught a lot of fish in the evening on a Goddard Caddis. Streamer fishing is still outstanding in the lower sections.
9-15-14 Upper sections still cloudy from reservoirs turning over. However clarity improves as you go down river. Still plenty of fish being caught... caddis, red rock worm, leeches, san jaun worm, prince nymphs, caddis emergers. On cloudy windless days you will find BWO's hatching. These hatches not provide great dry fly fishing, but also pull the fish over to the banks so try streamers as well.
