White River Fishing Report July 24 2011

It has been a great week on the White River this past week. When I am writing a White River Fishing Report, I often struggle with the content being repetitive week after week. Of course as the hatches start coming off or start slowing down I try to keep everyone abreast of the current conditions. This week is certainly heralding in some new tidbits I have been unaware of.


Mr Brown!

The evening streamer bite has been very good with some really nice browns being taken. I hope to have a “firsthand” account of this “new bite” within the week. Until then if you are looking for some exciting fishing, this streamer bite is going very well right now. Get your seven and eight weights and come on up!


A nice White River Brown!

Our guides have also been doing well on hoppers, and this is just going to continue to get better as the heat progresses into August and September. The water is still being turned off at night which is offering a window of wadeable water for all you guys who won’t or don’t flyfish unless your wading. This being said, the midge fishing under a hopper or an indicator has been very good. Some nice fish are being landed every day and the numbers for our guides are good as well. Fishing the catch and release area has been producing some very nice rainbows as usual. With this unseasonably warm summer the river isn’t even remotely crowded and the outstanding fishing is certainly indicative of the lack of fishermen. I actually don’t know if it is the heat or the economy that is giving us all a break. The great thing is that the trout dont know or care about either and they are definitely on the feed.

Our spinfishing has been nothing short of excellent! The low water in the morning has afforded some sightfishing for some nice browns. It is always exciting to see a double digit Brown Behemoth turn and swim toward your lure, I don’t care who you are.


What makes us famous! Another great nighttime brown!

As the water comes up our guides are “catching the rise” and are staying with the good productive water as it flows down stream. We had a family up this weekend and they fished only one day and caught around fifty or sixty trout with the biggest being a brown of about 4 pounds. They caught quite a few browns actually with an average size of about 16 to 18 inches. If you are thinking about a trip to The White River give us a call here at the White River inn and I’ll try to answer any questions you might have. Until next week, keep your lines tight, and don’t forget the sunscreen!
