Sun Valley Fishing Report

Big Wood River:  Running around 2,450 cfs the Wood is off color and cruising.  It will be awhile, probably after the 4th of July, before it becomes reasonably fishable.  The Big Lost keeps going up as expected and is running at 1,350 cfs as I write this.  Silver Creek is our only real viable option and has been inconsistent.  Pmd's, baetis, callibaetis and a few green drakes in the Nature Conservancy area.  I fished the S-Turns in the Nature Conservancy today and it was SLOW.  We had a good but short pmd and baetis emergence and by 10:30 or 11 it was over.  On the brown drake front, it could be over other than a few little trickles here and there.  Could still be worth the effort to head down tonight but there were very few bugs in the grass today which means you would be hoping for a spinner fall...
