We are winding up a great season of Skwalla fishing on the Owyhee River. Even though the water levels were
all but record lows(14 cfs), the fishing was still as good if not
better than a lot of years. The Skwallas may be gone for another year,
but because of the warmer than average weather we’ve been having, the
Caddis are already showing up in good numbers. When a few cloudy days showed up last week, so did the May flies and they showed up in force.
As of Sunday, the Owyhee river has been on the rise. Usually when this happens the fishing slows for a few days until the fish get use to the extra water and find their new homes.
Here is one of the beauties that gobbled a dry fly for us on our last trip.
