The Weber river below Rockport is somewhat of a question mark right now. It is currently flowing at 80 cfs, which is a scary low flow if it stays that way all summer. It is fishing decent with terrestrials and streamers, but we urge you to be careful here as the trout become fragile with water levels decreasing and water temperatures increasing. If you do fish here make sure to handle them properly and fight them quickly. There hasn’t been much hatch activity on the Weber this summer. The usual evening caddis hatches have been slightly week and there haven’t been many reports of people doing well with PMD nymphs, sow bugs, or caddis larva. There are hypothesis that most of the bio-mass was swept down to Echo reservoir during the high flows this spring. If you do decide to head there please be conscious of the fisheries health. Fishing in the early mornings and late evenings can be a solution for this issue.
As these flows may change in the near future, come on into the shop or give us a call for the most updated report.
