The Pit

The Pit River is in good shape this spring and has been kickin' out some quality fish recently.

As long as the flows continue to slowly rise they should not negatively impact the fishing at all. The main bugs for me continue to be Mayflies and Jimmy legs. The hatches have been pretty thin the past couple of days, but with this overcast, rainy weather thats heading in right now - we...
