Area Small Streams
Utah’s many small streams are fishing excellent right now. We are still seeing some terrestrial action in streams of lower elevation, but anticipate that the end of the terrestrial bite is close. All we need in a few more chilly nights and most of the hoppers will be finished. Beetles, Ants and Crickets will still produce fish on the colder days, but plan on trying to match the hatch. We have recently seen plenty of nice fish caught on BWO’s and midges. The streamer fishing can be excellent on the smaller streams this time of year as well. A personal favorite is a White Slump Buster. That fly hunts!
If You aren’t seeing action on the surface don’t give up, as long as you can get a good drift with your bug, fish will likely respond. As far as nymphing goes, try a shallow water rig using midges, baetis and caddis.
