Hatches are matched from Westfly's database of "standard" fly patterns.

Trout


► You might pick up some trout on blue-winged olive or midge patterns in the Terrebone area. This area holds a mix of brown trout and rainbow trout.

► The river holds resident brown trout below Benham Falls, and they can whack a streamer pattern that is presented in the pools and alongside the river bank where the water is over two feet deep.

► When fishing a streamer, try matching your fly to the sky color: dark patterns on dark days, lighter patterns on bright days.

General


► There is good public access near Terrebonne.

► Irrigation season should be over, and that means more water in the river than there was during summer.

► The river is closed from Little Lava Lake to Benham Falls.
