September & The Big Lost River & A Quick Sun Valley Fishing Report



Big Lost River, Idaho

Thunderheads and just a hint of Fall color.  It's the slow change from Summer to Fall.  Overnight lows in the upper 30's and highs somewhere in the mid 70's.  Look for hatches and conditions only to improve as daytime highs begin to cool.  Crowds on the river have already waned substantially post Labor Day Weekend.  Tricos and baetis and a few remaining crane flies on the Big Lost.  The current flow on the Lost is 267 cfs.  Silver Creek too should be getting better and better as the day time highs cool.  The 1:16 PM callibaetis event is becoming more and more consistent while as usual the baetis have gotten SMALLER.  Bring the smallest baetis you have along with a bag full of patience...  Damsel flies, beetles, flying ants and hoppers too.
