The stretch below the JC Boyle Powerhouse is a consistent producer of trout. While the fish are not large, they are plentiful. The road below Boyle is extremely rough, but the slow, bumpy drive can be worth it. After three miles, the road improves from horrible to merely bad.

Grasshopper fishing can be excellent in August. Other large, bushy dry flies--Madam X , Royal Wulff, Stimulator--will attract trout as well, but a Morrish Hopper is tough to beat at this time of year.

Watch for caddis hatches, too. Carry size 16-18 patterns, such as Elk Hair Caddis.

The river can get warm in the late summer sun, and that means trout will often hang out near aerated water. So look for bubbles; that's where the trout will be.

For more information on August fishing, see the Rivers section of the General Oregon Report
