River report- 4-24-21

Lees Ferry is fishing better and better everyday! The midge hatch is going crazy and the fish are eating well. The Brown bite has slowed a bit. They are getting harder to catch. Still the kastmasters, panther Martin’s and jigs seem to be the ticket. We are moving from scuds, eggs and worms to the midge rigs. The lees ferry fish are really keying on the midges. Just be down to the bottom no matter how you fish!

kayaking is always good at Lees Ferry! Give us a call and get your spot booked, we are filling up fast!
